Communications Associate

Part-time, $20/hour 5 hours/week

The Nebraska Writers Collective, a 501(c)(3) non-profit in Omaha, is looking to immediately hire a Communications Associate to assist with all aspects of PR, marketing, and telling our organization’s story.

Responsibilities include working with the Development Director to:

  • Prepare and distribute press releases;
  • Maintain and expand mailing lists;
  • Create and maintain a journalist contact list;
  • Contact journalists and media professionals to secure coverage for NWC initiatives and events;
  • Gather information and content for Facebook and website posts;
  • Manage day-to-day social media posts; and
  • Work with a Communications Intern who will assist with all of these tasks

Communications experience is preferred but not necessary. We need someone who can work consistently, independently, and proactively, contributing effort but also ideas. This would be a terrific opportunity for someone interested in a communications career, or for someone with more experience to do some meaningful work in our community on their schedule.

Hours are flexible, averaging five per week. Most work can be done from home, either independently or collaborating electronically with other staff members.

To apply and schedule an interview, please submit a brief cover letter and a resume or CV including references to NWC Development Director Tracy Baker at tracy@newriters.org.
