New Opportunities with SBWN!

The Scottish BAME Writers Network (SBWN) is very honoured to have been awarded Creative Scotland funding for their 2021 ‘Staying Connected’ programme. This ensures that we can continue to make meaningful opportunities and community for Black writers and writers of colour in Scotland.

 

Below are a few paid opportunities to work with the network in 2021.

Are you a writer who has always wanted to lead a writing workshop? Have you led writing workshops in the past? Or are you completely new to facilitating a workshop session? In order to continue providing workshops for writers of colour and a space for mentorship, we are launching this open call for workshop pitches.

The basics:

    • You will be paid an artist fee of £175.
    • No previous facilitation experience is required.
    • You will send a brief pitch (300 words maximum) for a 90-minute online workshop. This includes a 10-minute break.
      (Find out more about what to include in your pitch here)
    • Apply using this Google Form by the closing date (14th February 2020). If for any reason you are unable to use the Google Form, send your pitch (300 words max) to ScotBAMEWriters@gmail.com 

      Please only apply if you identify as a Black writer or writer of colour based in Scotland (or normally based in Scotland outside of COVID-19).
