Screenwriting Workshop Coordinator
The Middlebury Bread Loaf Screenwriting Workshop will be held in Middlebury, VT (main campus and Bread Loaf Campus) in January 2018 and will bring together Middlebury students enrolled in the Film and Media Winter Term Class, distinguished professionals from the entertainment industry, and six emerging screenwriters selected through a nationwide open application process. Inspired by powerhouses such as the Sundance and Film Independent Labs, the Bread Loaf Screenwriting Workshop will mobilize Middlebury's alumni and faculty resources to build a hub of creativity where our students can have a first experience of the professional screenwriting world.

The Workshop Coordinator will be responsible for the management, organizing and logistics of the workshop from its launching to the final post-workshop evaluation. Working under the supervision of the Workshop Director, the Coordinator will manage the application process, the inviting, communication and continued contact with the selected fellows and the mentors, the media presence of the workshop, the preparation and logistics of the week-long event, as well as the post-workshop wrap, evaluation and prep for the next edition. The Coordinator will be at the center of a network consisting of College units, entertainment industry professionals, national and Internet-based media, alumni, guests and students and will be responsible for building and maintaining this network.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for an energetic, hard-working and superbly organized individual. The ideal candidate will have great communication skills and a passion for the film industry (especially screenwriting). This nine month term position will give you the background and skills to prepare you for working in a coordinating, producing or assistant managing position in a wide variety of environments, as well as excellent contacts and a calling card in the film industry.

This is a term position from July 3, 2017 to April 8, 2018, approximately 30 hours per week (40 per week in January). Position is eligible for part-time benefits.
