Opportunity: Spoken Word Development Group Co-ordinator

Sharing news of a new role for freelancers with an admin background interested in Spoken Word.

On behalf of the Spoken Word Development Group, we are sharing news of their current recruitment drive for a Group C-ordinator.


Scotland lacks a centralised body for developing and supporting Spoken Word Poetry. There has been widespread anecdotal call for this sort of support from individual spoken word artists and spoken word organisations within Scotland. The Spoken Word Development Group requires an administrative role to support their aims in facilitating the beginning of a network, and scope the need for, and type of, support which would be required on an ongoing basis, as well as a sense of appetite for the network.


Value of contract: 

£7,600 for 2.5 days per month for one year (includes 5 days of holiday allowance)

This is an administrative post which will report to the membership of the Spoken Word Development Group with support from the Society of Authors Poetry and Spoken Word Group. This project is funded by Creative Scotland in partnership with the Scottish Book Trust. The post holder will be provided with Society of Authors membership for this period.


Wednesday 9 August at midday

This role is not within Scottish Book Trust, but as part of the Spoken Word Development Group.

Applications are now closed.
