Now Recruiting: Wandering Words Project Manager

We are looking for a freelance project manager with experience of managing literature commissions and events to coordinate our Wandering Words project.

Wandering Words is a literary project for Swale and Medway, encouraging people to write, share and explore written works of all kinds – including prose, poetry, journalism, graphic novels and spoken word.

We are currently developing an online literary map platform where people can upload text, audio and video relating to place. To launch this platform in Spring 2015 and to inspire new arts participants in the area, six writers will be commissioned to produce new site-specific work for the site with an interactive or live element.

We envisage a programme of events and activities, which would include a launch and other ticketed events, to promote the platform and engage people in Swale and Medway with the project.

The Project Manager will be responsible for liaising with the web developer, coordinating the development and delivery of the commissions and events programme utilising the online literary map platform.
