Opportunity: Writer in Residence with Mayflower Theatre and ArtfulScribe

ArtfulScribe and Mayflower Theatre are excited to announce a new vacancy for a Writer in Residence to work with Mayflower staff, visitors and touring productions in 2017 as part of the SO:Write Literature Development Project in Southampton.

It’s envisaged the successful candidate will deliver some outreach workshops that interact with Mayflower’s seasonal programme and will also be willing to creatively engage with the venue and its history 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 potential of performance and writing to enrich and transform lives.

An honorarium of £5000 paid quarterly in arrears accompanies the position, based on a commitment of one day per week over a 48 week period. A publishing contract will also be included as part of this post.

This is an excellent portfolio opportunity for a writer to raise their public profile and to gain valuable experience working in an environment that champions the arts and engages with creative communities.

Applicants are requested to submit a CV of relevant experience along with a statement of approximately one side of A4 detailing what they can bring to and hope to gain from the role. For further information and to apply, please email matt@artfulscribe.co.uk

Deadline for applications: 9th December 2016 at 5pm.

SO:Write is a 2 year literature development project in Southampton, supported by Arts Council England and led by ArtfulScribe in partnership with Apples and Snakes, John Hansard Gallery, Mayflower Theatre, Nuffield, Southampton Festivals, and Southampton Libraries.
