Steering Group: Call For New Member

Postgraduate Contemporary Women’s Writing Network // CALL FOR STEERING GROUP MEMBER

The PG CWWN is a free and thriving research community, and we invite all postgraduate students whose research is concerned with the work of contemporary women writers to get involved. The network hosts a variety of networking and training events for PGRs and ECRs working in the field of contemporary women’s writing, including our flagship biannual conference recently held at Sheffield Hallam University.

The network is run by a group of PhD candidates studying at a variety of institutions in the UK and Europe in different stages of their doctoral study. The steering group members are enthusiastic about contemporary women’s writing and passionate about bringing together scholars of the subject.

We are now looking to recruit a new steering group member to join our proactive and enthusiastic team to help continue the work of the PG CWWN. Responsibilities will include keeping up our social media presence, maintaining vital treasury tasks and assisting with our mailing list. You will also play a vital role as co-organiser of our next biannual conference, helping at all levels of its organisation. Experience with funding bids, WordPress and wider IT skills would be beneficial, but are not essential.

If you would like to join the PG CWWN steering group please send a current academic CV and covering letter outlining why you would like to join the group to by Friday 30th November 2018. To find out more about more about the network please visit our website, or make an informal enquiry using the above email address.

We look forward to hearing from you!

The PG CWWN Steering Group (Emma, Fiona and Isabelle)
