Social media marketing intern wanted
There is a new 1-year social media marketing internship available at Retreat West for a young writer looking to gain experience of the creative writing/publishing industry and develop their fiction writing skills.
I’m looking for someone to work remotely to take over the day-to-day running of Retreat West social media accounts – currently Facebook and Twitter – to increase awareness of all the courses, retreats, competitions and books published through Retreat West Books. You’ll need to respond to comments, grow the number of people engaged with Retreat West on social media, find interesting content from other creative writing/publishing accounts to share, and write some blogs. I envisage it would be 10-15 hours a week. Ideally, I’d like you to also find new ways of reaching wider audiences and come up with new marketing ideas.
In return I will teach you about the creative writing/publishing industry; mentor you throughout the year to develop your work through the online novel writing course I run, which will enable you to complete the first draft of a new novel in 8 months, and through a short story course that I’m releasing later this year; and you’ll be able to come to book launch events and make lots of industry contacts. It will be great experience for your CV to move on to a job in the publishing industry.
Please email me by 5pm on 9th February if you would like to be considered for the role. Let me know about you, your writing experience, and why you’d like to work with Retreat West. Please also give a brief outline of an idea you have to increase Retreat West’s social media engagement and provide a 500-word sample of your fiction writing.
