Book on a Tree is an international storytelling agency that works with some of the most important publishers and TV studios in the world; producing books, comics, cartoons, video games and much, much more! We are looking for a motivated and talented junior/mid-weight Copywriter, with proven writing ability and strong communication skills to join our team of Authors, Illustrators, Editors and Translators.

Is that you?

The job will entail working closely with the Creative and Production teams to write, edit and review all in-house written content, and to edit or copy-edit texts for projects we produce for our clients. The ideal candidate will combine a creative mind and storytelling skills with an organised approach and the commitment to deliver copy to the agreed deadlines.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented person, with  2-3 years experience working in a creative agency –or the equivalent– as a full-time creative copywriter. He or she must be able to generate original ideas and to work with an artist to bring them to life, conceptually and visually, in line with the requirements of each client. A passion for books, and in particular children’s/YA literature would be desirable.

Important: Though this is primarily a copywriting position, many of our clients are Italian companies, therefore any appropriate candidate with knowledge of the Italian language and the possibility of translating from Italian to English will have precedence over other candidates. We will take in great consideration any experience as a literary and/or tech translator from Italian to English.

Please note: All candidates will be asked to carry out a copywriting test, and if shortlisted to attend a follow-up day (paid) with our creative team.

Do you have a passion for generating original creative ideas and bringing them to life with words? In that case, maybe we are looking for you. Get in touch with us and apply straight away!
