They will be aware of current practice in arts education and in the teaching of creative writing in schools, universities and community settings. They will have proven practical ability, not only to develop strategy but to see it through to successful implementation. They will have excellent communication skills, be able to work with individual writers, universities and funders and with our many partners in the UK and overseas.
