Writer in Residence – Expressions of Interest
A 10-12 month opportunity to have a positive impact on people’s lives and help break the stigma around alcohol and drug use and dependence.
Like other traumatic experiences, alcohol and drug dependence can damage a person’s sense of self and cause them to lose track of their life story.
Writing and talking about their life story as part of a treatment program can play an important part on a resident’s path of healing. This project will help residents rediscover who they are (identity) and how they feel about themselves (self-esteem).
From these stories, we’ll create a suite of products to share the story of recovery to counter the stigma and misinformation around alcohol and drug use and addiction, treatment and recovery.
What we’ll offer you
- The chance to make a meaningful and profound impact on people’s lives.
- Flexible working arrangements – We anticipate this project will require a commitment of at least 20 hours a week. We will work with the selected writer/s to agree on the most suitable hours and ways of working.
- All equipment and supplies will be provided.
- Successful writer/s will be paid as a contractor with a negotiable hourly rate (~$40-$60 p/h), based on experience.
Expressions of Interest close at 5.00pm on Wednesday 10 March.
