Creative writing tutors

We’re looking for creative writing tutors to work with us on our Get started in historical fiction workshop series, starting at the end of June. The workshops involve clients completing a series of written assignments over an approximately six week period per workshop, in order to help them get started writing their historical novels. Follow the link above for more detail on specific assignments.

Tutors have one week to review each assignment and provide feedback in the form of inline comments and a couple of paragraphs of summary feedback at the end. A typical assignment takes between 30–60 minutes to review and provide feedback on. We offer a pay rate of £160 GBP per workshop, per client.

If you have experience and expertise in teaching creative writing and/or content editing and are interested in working with us as a tutor on this programme, please email jobs@thehistoryquill.com with your CV and a cover letter. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to take a short test.

The application deadline is 25 May, 11:59 BST.
