ArtfulScribe and Southampton Libraries are recruiting for a Writer in Residence to work with libraries, staff and visitors in 2017/18 as part of the SO:Write project
It’s envisaged the successful candidate will deliver workshops that interact with current library initiatives, such as Summer Reading Challenge and be willing to creatively engage with libraries to produce new work reflective of the residency.
As well as being a talented writer, the Writer in Residence will be a confident speaker and advocate for the pleasures of reading and writing.
An honorarium of £5000 accompanies the position, based on a commitment of one day per week over a twelve-month period. A publication of the residency’s written output is also included.
This is an excellent portfolio opportunity for a writer to raise their public profile and gain valuable experience working in an environment that supports a diverse community.
