Marketing / web / social media wizz wanted …

Would you like to become involved with one of NZ’s leading writing centres? We are currently looking for someone with strong web / marketing / social media skills to help us take the Hub up to the next level. We are soon to offer our courses internationally, and we are looking for a part-timer to help develop our profile on the web, via an enhanced website presence and on Facebook, Twitter and other social media. A passionate interest in creative writing a great advantage!
Please email us by Thursday 2 October with a brief CV and covering letter if you are interested.

Upcoming Courses
Our next 30 Week Fiction Course begins on 30 September. The course is in its fifth year, and features many of NZ’s leading writers and editors as workshop leaders and mentors, including Fiona Kidman, Tessa Duder, Geoff Walker, Roger Hall, Chris Else, Sarah Laing, Elisabeth Smither and Judith White. Students receive one-on-one mentoring over the summer with an established Kiwi writer. Graduates regularly report that the most valuable aspect of the course is the close support of a group of like-minded start out writers. 
Many graduate groups go on meeting for years after the end of the course, so you get several years support for the price of one! Eleven graduates of our 30 week fiction courses have gone on to publish novels or win prizes in national writing awards since 2010.
