Carbon Copy
Every Monday, 6-9pm

Do you struggle to make time or find space to write? Join Carbon Copy!                       

Carbon Copy provides a free space for anyone to write. You are encouraged to work on your own piece of writing: novels, short stories, essays, poetry, scripts, applications, love letters, lectures, council forms, shopping lists, reports... We provide chairs and tables, an atmosphere conducive to writing and tea breaks! You will need to bring your own laptop or pen and paper. 
We would like everyone who comes to write to leave behind a carbon copy (or digital) of what they have written during this time. These texts will form a basis of a zine and e-publication distributed for free.

No need to book, just pop in.           

Practical information: to access Carbon Copy, go to the back entrance of the building, opposite Hackney Pirates, and ring the buzzer. If you don’t get an answer, please call 077 3150 9854.

Unpaid opportunities

We recognise that there is great value in people having access to proper work experience, where it is offered and arranged properly and is a mutually beneficial arrangement, but that this should never be used as a way of attempting to circumvent national minimum wage regulations. Please ensure that your posts are compliant with our terms and conditions. We reserve the right to remove any posts without further notice to you which, in our reasonable judgment, do not comply with the terms and conditions.

Internships in the arts

Arts Council and Creative & Cultural Skills have published these guidelines to help clarify the legal obligations of arts organisations offering internships.

Please note that we will not accept postings on Arts Jobs for unpaid internships unless they are part of a recognised further or higher education course.
