***New Salary + Timeline: Write Around Portland Executive Director Job Announcement*

Write Around Portland is hiring its next Executive Director!

About Write Around Portland:

Write Around Portland amplifies voices, builds community and changes lives through the power of writing. Since 1999, we've partnered with 278 agencies to hold free 10-week creative writing workshops for 8,800 adults and youth. We've also published 58 anthologies and held 265 public readings reaching almost 17,000 people. We do this work because we know writing is a powerful tool for expression, healing, and the realization of the dignity of oneself and others.  Our work is grounded in our core values - respect writing and community.

As an Executive Director, you'll work with hundreds of volunteers and participants each year, and because you'll be working with writers who are eager to share their experience, many will tell you exactly how you've made a difference in their lives. This job is the chance to do work that is an overwhelmingly positive force in peoples' lives and in our communities.

Compensation: The annual salary for this role is $67,500-$78,000 with generous benefits (including a 35-hour work week plus a sabbatical policy, good health insurance, and PTO).

The position will remain open until filled. However, we prefer to receive applications by 5:00 PM on Friday, July 15, 2022, when we'll be reviewing them. We will invite select candidates for interviews soon after that. We project a start date in late September.
