Jobs for Writers

This post is a bit of an experiment. I thought it might be useful to provide a regular round up of writing or writing related jobs that come to my attention  This is the first week and all the jobs I’ve found are not only in England, but in south east England – sorry about that – but I would like to reflect the international readership of this blog in future.  And I’d love to know if you think a job section is helpful.

The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Buckinghamshire is looking for  a Freelance Poet to deliver an activity as part of Roald Dahl Day on 17th September 2016.

    OMG, this is great! Although I am across the sea currently, (Reno, NV US,) it gives added incentive to get me there. The youth music content was similar to what I did here – and loved! Wish I was there NOW! 8^).

    I see many jobs available in the US, this is totally fun, intriguing & refreshing!
    You might be a great asset for tourism! lol

    Yes, this could be really helpful! I’m just a bit too far from London to commute, sadly, but I’m always interested in what’s out there 🙂
