Work With Us

Positions Vacant


Writing NSW is looking for three enthusiastic, creative people with an interest in writers and writing to join our volunteer intern program in the first half of 2020.

This is an excellent opportunity for emerging arts workers with an interest in literature, communications or arts management to develop their skills by working with our talented and supportive team.

As one of our interns, you will produce online content, work on digital and other projects, contribute to communications strategies, liaise with publishers and the broader writing community, help manage our library, assist at events, and undertake general administration tasks as required.

Each of the interns will work one day per week from January-June 2020 at our office in Callan Park, Lilyfield. You will work closely with our Membership & Administration Officer, Project and Communications Officer and Program Officer, under the direction of our CEO. You will receive a transport and meal allowance for each day you work and will be able to undertake a short course at Writing NSW free of charge, subject to availability.

To apply, please submit a one-page letter telling us why you would be the right person for this opportunity together with your CV and contact details for two referees. Applications should emailed to jobs[at]writingnsw[dot]org[dot]au by midnight on Wednesday 4 December. Writing NSW welcomes applications from Indigenous people and people from diverse backgrounds.


Writing NSW encourages the submission of proposals to include in our twice-yearly course programming rounds. We schedule courses in March/April (for June-December of the same year) and in August/September (for January-June of the following year).

If you are a writer or author with experience teaching/tutoring, or if you have significant experience working in a relevant field with industry expertise, we will consider your proposal during the planning stages of our program.

To be considered you must complete the Expression of Interest form.
