One of the main aims of this role is to work with local communities and help us reach wider audiences.
The Writer-in-Residence will be contracted on a part-time fixed term contract for 5 months, from Monday 3rd October 2022 until Monday 6th March 2023, with an expected commitment of approximately 35 days applied based on the needs of the Festival and those of the successful candidate.
