The class will last 6 to 8 weeks and include about a dozen incarcerated writers. This will be an unpaid volunteer position. The instructor will need to pass a thorough background check and complete a training course on safety and procedures. Applicants should have extensive experience both leading workshops for novice writers and working with at-risk populations. Those interested in applying should send a current resume or CV and a cover letter to ed@ncwriters.org.
