Vacancy: Lit Reach Project Officer (Part Time)

North West Wales

22.5 hours per week
12 month Fixed Term Contract

This role will be responsible for delivering and developing the Lit Reach/ Llên Pawb project in North Wales.
Literature Wales believes that literature belongs to everybody and can be found everywhere. The aim is to improve opportunities for people of all background and abilities to engage in literature activities throughout Wales. Lit Reach/ Llên Pawb is a new literature participation project, which builds on two previous Literature Wales initiatives (the Gwynedd Literature Promotion Scheme and the South Wales Literature Development Initiative).

The purpose of Llên Pawb / Lit Reach is to deliver projects specifically targeting vulnerable groups and individuals. These include people who are at risk of becoming socially disengaged, as well as those who may not have engaged with mainstream arts and culture before. By working with a range of partners the aim is to stimulate and support sustainable literary activity in the community. These activities will encourage self-expression; improve personal skills; lifelong learning; youth social engagement; and health and wellbeing.

The Lit Reach Project Officer will be responsible for developing literature and creative writing opportunities with communities in north Wales, working closely with Literature Wales’ teams in north and south Wales. The project will start in autumn 2017, running for 12 months until autumn 2018, initially.
