Writer/Facilitator for Southampton based Young Writers’ Groups

ArtfulScribe and Mayflower Theatre are looking to appoint an experienced, versatile Writer/Facilitator to lead term-time weekly Young Writers’ sessions as part of a two-year project. Sessions will take place on Saturday mornings and each session will be split to accommodate writers aged between 13-17 years from 9.00am-1045am, and writers aged 18-30 years from 11.00am – 1245pm.

The Writer/Facilitator will be required to provide a safe and supportive environment that will encourage, nurture and develop participants and be welcoming to those who may lack self-confidence.

The Writer/Facilitator will be supported by a project manager, and will also have admin, evaluation, and marketing support from an assistant.

Applicants are requested to outline a structured delivery proposal that takes into account accessibility for a mixed ability group and that works in connection with Mayflower Theatre’s seasonal programme and other cultural events in Southampton.  For example, British Art Show 8 is visiting the city between October 2017 and January 2018, and we would like to see events and opportunities like this and other local arts-based projects used as focal points to engage and inspire the group. Applicants are also requested to provide two example workshop plans showing time and content management and an up-to-date CV detailing relevant experience.

This is an exciting opportunity for a writer to work with a group over an extended period of time and to deliver engaging projects that celebrate young voices in Southampton. Remuneration is £115 per session.

Please email applications to matt@artfulscribe.co.uk with a subject heading of ‘SO:Write Young Writers’ Group Facilitator’. Please send any queries to the same address.

Deadline for applications is 5pm, 14th October 2016
