The Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowships offer a significant new development opportunity for poets and support individuals whose practice encompasses poetry in the broadest artistic sense.
The programme runs biennially for three editions between 2017 and 2022 supporting a total of nine artists, three Fellowships per edition. Successful artists each receive £15,000 to support a year of Fellowship, during which they are matched with a core mentor and will have further access to a range of advisers and critical friends to support their developing practice.
They seek an experienced and highly organised individual with an excellent track record of managing projects, ideally in the literary sector though they are very open to experience from other areas. This role will be responsible for the development and delivery of the second edition of the Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowships.
The ideal candidate will have worked successfully with artists to support the development of their practice. They will be an adept communicator with the proven ability to bring value to the project, overseeing a career-enhancing year for the three selected Fellows.
