Opportunities for Comedy Writers in Rotherham:

Grimm and Co is a story charity based in Rotherham and working with young people throughout Yorkshire. Our aim is to inspire young people to be creative, confident writers, changing lives one story at a time.

If you are a talented artist in a writing related discipline, we need you! We are always looking for people to add to our bank of associate artists, so please feel free to send us your cv and examples of your work, regardless of your specialist area (see email address below).

However we are currently specifically recruiting to the following two projects:

Sports Strip: Half Term Holidays (February 16-20th)

Could you work with children taking part in a half term sports scheme, together creating a comic ready for printing, which will likely be sports related? You are probably a published cartoonist or comic strip creator and ideally have experience of working with children in an informal educational setting.

Rotherham Young Comedians: Saturday mornings or Monday evenings, February to March

Could you support teenagers to develop their skills in writing comedy? Your specialism may be in any genre (eg. stand-up for performance, play scripts, sketch shows, humorous journalism) but you are probably published and likely to have worked with teenagers before.

For both roles you will need to be able to inspire young people by showing them your own work, and you should be keen to support and encourage them in their writing. You must be willing to contribute to joint planning and evaluation of the projects. Our hourly rate for artists is £25.

Please send your cv and any examples of your work (eg. You Tube link, publication) by Monday February 2nd at 9am to Our website is currently under construction, but in the meantime, information is available on Facebook and Twitter, please search for Grimm and Co. We look forward to hearing from you!
