Vacancy: Reading and Creative Writing Group Leader

Closing Date: 27th July 2018

Amongst our most popular activities is the reading and creative writing group which incorporates three main elements:

  • reading as therapy (a recognised concept),
  • creative writing where individuals share something creative they have written (in any media form) and
  • discussing individually chosen writing – from any genre, including fiction, non-fiction, news, poetry etc.

The role of Group Leader involves encouraging and enabling group members to read and discuss work by current or popular writers of novels or poetry and to try their hand (if they want to) at writing their own short stories or poems.

The post is for 2.5 hrs per week (currently on Thursdays afternoons) at an hourly rate of £19.18.

Application will be by CV and covering letter. The post is subject to membership of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme.
