Redemptive Work is looking for Narrative Copywriters to assist in our work with displaced, disabled, formerly incarcerated, or other socially outcast persons to create sustainable living situations. Our clients need assistance accessing local resources and services, personal goal setting, employment search, and more.What does a Narrative Copywriter do?
A Narrative Copywriter is the voice of a client's story. Clients attend clinics which generate a clinical summary of the person's life story. We need writers to translate these clinic notes into success stories, failure stories, and truth-telling stories of life for the displaced and unemployable. These stories will be used in fundraising, friend-raising, brand building and other venues to raise awareness of the plight of those trapped in poverty by unjust social structures.
They will also be responsible for helping to shape the overall story and express client dialogue in moving and meaningful ways. It’s important for the Narrative Copywriter to understand the tone and world of the client, as they’ll be writing a lot of the small touches that could make or break the experience for the reader. As a job, it’s a real labor of love that combines a dedication to writing and a passion for equality and justice.
For this role, you will need to:
- Have a creative and intelligent writing style
- Be able to create text and dialogue that tells a client's RW story
- Understand what makes human services appealing to different audiences
- Possess excellent imagination and creativity
- Capture the dramatic story behind clinical records
- Have excellent communication and presentation skills
We are looking for our Narrative Copywriter to produce one client story a week, for use on social media platforms, and future use on our website and in promotional materials. We anticipate that this will require 1-3 hours a week commitment.
This role is ideal for professionals in the field wishing to volunteer and students majoring in journalism, English, communications, or any individual interested in narrative or literature.
