Join the Word Factory

Want to be part of an innovative writer’s organisation? I am looking for brilliant volunteers to join the Word Factory and replace two outstanding team-members who have gone on to great jobs in the literary and publishing world.

Social Media Manager: you will be an excellent communicator; you will be confident working on social media, particularly, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You will be excited about leading a small team and planning a strategy to promote a renowned literature programme. You will receive training and be supported to become self-sufficient in the role.

Online Manager: you will be itching to commission for our blog using our content, including film, and your own ideas; you will be available to update content on the website and work with the director on a range of special editorial projects.

The voluntary roles are for one year from March 2019 and would suit anyone looking for an introduction to the literary business. We offer a package worth £500 a year: free access to our renowned masterclasses, events and network. The roles could become paid, subject to progress and funding. Our references have helped volunteers move into competitive paid employment.

Interested? Let me know who you are and why you want to join us. Email cathy@thewordfactory.tv and mark you email, Telling Stories.
