The Poetry School?s outstanding Regional Programme Coordinator for the North West, Linda Chase, is stepping down from the role, creating an exciting opportunity for a literature professional with a passion for poetry to contribute to the programming, coordination, promotion and development of our most active region outside of London. The new Coordinator will inherit an established programme in robust health, with real opportunities and challenges ahead as the organisation looks to consolidate and grow.
You will have a demonstrable knowledge and love of contemporary poetry and be brimming with ideas for the best ways to teach it to poets of all levels and abilities. You are likely to have strong links to the poetry-writing community in Manchester and the surrounding area, but also be driven by the desire to reach out to new audiences. You will be supported in the role by the Director and the rest of the Poetry School team in London.
