Work for the Afghan Women's Writing Project

By way of my friend Jeff Lyons:

The Afghan Women’s Writing Project (AWWP) is looking to bring on board three volunteer Creative Outreach Assistants to help in our creative outreach efforts. These volunteers will report directly to the Director of Creative Outreach and will be non-paid positions. Jobs will entail working with the Director and other staff in organizing, planning, implementing, and promoting a national effort to stage multiple theatrical stage presentations of the AWWP’s writer’s works similar to the recent Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. events (See website for details).


n Conducting outreach to theatrical organizations to pitch the idea of staging a theatrical event.

n Maintaining Creative Outreach website (updating, editing content).

n Helping with logistics, planning, and physical staging of events by working with theater companies and their staffs remotely and locally (where possible).

n Assisting in the design, writing, and creation of documents, spreadsheets, or other documentation needed to execute all of the above.

n Commit at no more than 5 hours per week on promotional and administrative tasks.

Some experience in the following would be beneficial:

n Speak English fluently and present solid people skills.

n Self-manage—there will be little hand-holding.

n Copy edit, proof and correct English with fluency and some style.

n Be willing to learn a virtual assistant web application.

n Internet and computer literate.

n Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint (not necessarily all three, Word is essential).

n Some interest in the arts, theater, film or creative writing.
