WANTED: Marketing & Communications Freelancer
Could you promote poetry with passion?
We are urgently seeking a dynamic professional with digital flair to take a world-class poetry festival into the next stage of development.
The Poetry Trust has secured three-year Arts Council Lottery funding to expand its flagship annual international Aldeburgh Poetry Festival into Aldeburgh Music’s Snape Maltings campus. This transformational development creates more space for more people across a wider range of venues.
Your key task will be to generate new audiences for the Festival, and also to promote the range of associated activities: The Poetry Paper, The Poetry Channel, the Aldeburgh First Collection Prize and The Poetry Prom.
You’ll be a creative thinker with strong strategic planning and effective management and delivery experience, someone capable of inspiring others locally, nationally and globally to get passionate about poetry.
Based in Halesworth, Suffolk this is a freelance contract for circa 45 days in 2013/14 for a fee of £5k plus expenses, annually renewable for two years.
