Burning Eye Books have recently agreed a funding package with Arts Council England for a six month programme to enhance their work as the UK’s only poetry publisher dedicated to performance and spoken word poets.

As part of this programme we are looking for a Freelance Marketing & PR person (part time) to increase our marketing campaigns to drive sales for our poets. This will include social media, PR, blog content creation and management and working closely with the BE team in supporting and publicising a series of events throughout the programme period.

Familiarity will all major social media platforms is essential as is a knowledge of the contemporary UK performance and spoken word poetry scene. We need someone who can have an impact from the first moment. If you are someone engaged with contemporary live poetry and interested in being involved in one of the UK’s most progressive poetry publishers get in touch.
