I’m an author, teacher and creative coach seeking a part-time assistant for creative, administrative and clerical aspects of that business. High social / communication skills are absolute requirements, marketing acumen a big plus.
- Participating in weekly strategy and diabolically brilliant goal-setting sessions
- Research and reporting, some interviewing (mostly non-clandestine)
- Managing a very minor social media empire which includes Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Facebook, and a Wordpress blog
- Fielding media inquiries
Administrative duties include managing submissions to finicky literary journals and residencies, fielding over-detailed client requests and course registrations, occasional transcribing, corresponding with the mad mad world by email and phone, scheduling appointments and interviews.
I’m looking for someone sharp, reliable and pro-active with a positive attitude and the highest level of personal and communication skills. There are writing, editing and publishing opportunities for the more literary-oriented assistant, but literary ambition is neither a requirement nor a detraction for this job. Magical abilities a huge plus.
10 hours per week at the start, at $15 per hour. Available to meet in person once per week Monday or Tuesday to discuss strategy and set that week’s agenda; the remaining work to be done on flextime as best fits the assistant’s own schedule. Our work environment and tone is low stress and compassionate.
