Literature Wales

Paid Personal Development Opportunity for a Poet

Closing date for applications: 5pm Wednesday 21st November

Literature Wales is offering an opportunity for a poet new to the field of running workshops to co-lead a project for 11-14 year olds alongside an experienced workshop facilitator, in the South Powys area.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to shadow and be mentored, as well as gain experience in jointly planning a project (details of pay and terms below). This will be a bilingual (Welsh and English) project, but we welcome applications from poets who only work in one language.

There will be a total of two days of workshops in a secondary school in South Powys (December-January 2019; dates to be confirmed), and one additional day in Cardiff Bay on 19 February to present the work to an audience.

This presentation will form part of an event organised by Literature Wales at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay on Tuesday 19 February 2019: A Day of Reflection on Poetry of War and Peace in Wales. The programme of the day will include readings, commissioned lectures, performances and presentations deriving from workshops with different groups across Wales. The project is funded by Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918.
