We have a fantastic team of volunteer stewards in place but if you'd like to be put on our back-up list please contact us here.

We'd also love to hear from anyone happy to distribute programmes for us before the Festival.

Workshop Supporter

Location: UK Wide
Salary: £300 per workshop plus travel and accommodation
Application deadline: DEADLINE HAS EXPIRED

Stratford-upon-Avon Literary Festival has been awarded a grant by Arts Council England to continue to deliver its very successful one-day bedtime story writing workshops in prisons around the UK. The workshops, at which we teach prisoners how to build a story, help to maintain a connection between parent and child and to help lessen the trauma of separation. We are looking for a motivated, sensitive person to assist the children’s author who will lead the workshop, and help the prisoners to complete their stories. The workshops, which run from approx 8am to 4.30pm, will be monthly at the very most and could be at any prison anywhere in England or Wales. Travel and overnight stays will be covered by the Festival and pay is on a per workshop basis. Training will be given so no experience necessary, but the position would suit someone with a rich imagination.
