Join the Word Factory: Social Media Manager Opportunity

Here’s your chance to be part of a dynamic and exciting literary organisation, The Word Factory: “A national organisation supporting excellence in short fiction,” according to The Guardian.


The Word Factory was founded by poet and journalist Cathy Galvin, co-founder of the Sunday Times Short Story Award.


We’re looking for a social media manager to run a small team to cover the Word Factory’s thriving social media output across all platforms. That person would be tasked with planning strategy, responsible for the team publishing a diverse range of content and liaising with the director and associate director. We expect it to take around five hours a week (those hours can be flexible and may include weekends). This is a voluntary role and would suit a writer looking to get experience in the arts or someone starting out in a digital marketing career. You’d be fully trained and improve your digital and social skills. Our previous manager landed a top position at the Society of Authors and others have gone to found London Short Story Festival and to publish award-winning novels.


On top of that, you’re invited, for free, to all live events and masterclasses (in London and across the UK – with guests including Neil Gaiman, Tobias Wolff, Anne Enright and Tessa Hadley), which has a value in excess of £500 a year, plus you’d be supported by a community of like-minded writers – in the past, those in this team have gone to to work for high-profile literary organisations including Society of Authors, London Short Story Festival and published award-winning novels.


Dynamic members of the team include multiple award-winning authors such as Paul McVeigh and Zoe Gilbert as well as writers mentored by the Word Factory like the 2019 Desmond Elliott Prize winner Claire Adam and Melissa Fu.
