The NSW Writers’ Centre is looking for two enthusiastic, creative people with an interest in writers and writing to join our volunteer intern program in the second half of 2016.
This is an excellent opportunity for emerging arts workers with an interest in literature, communications or arts management to develop their skills by working with our talented and supportive team.
As one of our interns, you will produce online content, work on digital and other projects, contribute to communications strategies, liaise with publishers and the broader writing community, help manage our library, assist at events, and undertake general administration tasks as required.
Each of the interns will work one day per week from July-December 2016 at our office in Callan Park, Rozelle. You will work closely with our Program Officer, Membership Officer, and Project and Communications Officer, under the direction of our Executive Director. You will receive a transport and meal allowance for each day you work and will be able to undertake a short course at the centre free of charge, subject to availability.
To apply, please email us a one-page letter telling us why you would be the right person for this opportunity together with your CV and contact details for two referees. Applications should be emailed to email@example.com by 5pm on Friday 20 May 2015.
“My work experience at the NSW Writers’ Centre was invaluable. I came to the Writers’ Centre with a degree in creative writing and no idea what to do with my future. I left with a career in the arts, access to a community and a new understanding of how to pursue my writing ambitions as well.”
- Jacqui Dent, Communications Manager, Australian Society of Authors
