Shadow Writer in Residence for Lincoln South Mental Health Project, Writing East Midlands
Deadline: Fri 7 May 2021
We are recruiting one Shadow Writer in Residence to work with the Lead Writer in Residence to run a writing group for adults with mental health problems in the Lincoln region.

This project is composed of a series of five poetry and mental health workshops running within Lincoln in summer 2021.

The Shadow Writers will work with the Lead Writer in Residence, taking inspiration from a variety of sources – such as narrative therapy, creative writing, poetry, and poetry therapy – and develop a series of activities and exercises.

The aim of the workshops is to enable participants to write and share their narratives, and reconnect to things that are valued and meaningful within their lives.

Person Specification
Good interpersonal skills and experience in facilitating workshops groups.
An interest in the relationship between poetry and mental health.
Experience of working within the sphere of mental health – this might be directly in within MH services, running similar workshops or lived experience of mental health problems.
Interest in the evaluation of the project, including working with others to develop and undertake a small-scale evaluation study, leading to an academic publication.
A connection with Lincoln or Lincolnshire.

The workshops will give space to up to 30 participants from Lincoln South and will be delivered in an in-person workshop setting – dependent on COVID-19 regulations. (If an in-person setting is not suitable or practical, the workshops may be delivered online via Zoom instead.)

Fee: £750 (£75 x 10 sessions) plus travel expenses
