We’re looking for an extremely well-organised, creative, communicative and collaborative Creative Producer to support the development and delivery of the programme for Push the Boat Out 2024.

Push the Boat Out: Edinburgh's International Poetry Festival is a new platform for poetry, spoken word and performance which is entering its 4th year, and our first as a registered SCIO. Taking place in November 2024 in Summerhall, Edinburgh, with online and in person events, we also have a growing year-round programme including our monthly open mic, and plans for other regular events.

We’re looking for an extremely well-organised, communicative and collaborative Creative Producer to support the development and delivery of the 2024 programme. This is an exciting new post with significant opportunities to develop your skills both in festival programming and producing while contributing to our year round growth and delivery.

Working closely with the Director and the Programme Group, the role will give the right candidate the opportunity co-programme the festival including lead responsibility for specific agreed strands.

We’re looking for someone with the ideas, the contacts and the ambition to collaboratively co-create a programme which showcases brilliant contemporary Scottish and UK poetry, while exploring the creative potential of language, and poetry’s connections to other artforms more broadly.

Freelance contract: £13,320 (£180/day, 74 days approx) from March 2024 to February 2025 (may be extended subject to funding) starting as soon as possible.
