Help us do it right

Bridge Eight, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit literary organization with a two part mission: to enrich the Jacksonville community with literary arts education, and to be the voice of Jacksonville in the national literary community. We believe that our city will become the New Literary Capital of the South.

Now in our third year, we’re continuing to build a foundation that will make our organization sustainable for years to come.

We all still do this for the love of it, which means we’re not paid, but also means we have creative freedom to create things we love and see them out in the world. If you’d like to be a part of our small team trying to do big things (on either our board or on a by-project basis), we’d love to hear from you.

Below is a list of open positions on our Board of Directors for a year-long term, and other positions on a by-project basis or other. Organization by-laws can be delivered by request.


Development Director

Bridge Eight has built the beginnings of an organization. We’re now looking for someone who will help us find and take advantage of the opportunities for us to secure our foundation and grow. As development director, you will spearhead our efforts to find and apply for local and regional grants, as well as create initiatives for our overall growth as a leading literary organization in North Florida.

A background in fundraising and/or grant writing preferred.

Graphic Designer 

It’s small stuff really, but we’d love to partner with a designer or artist who wants or needs a passion project to do something they love. Whether it’s on a project basis, or something else, we’re looking for someone to help us take stories and make something of them (digital assets for web or social, merchandise, or something way cooler). If you know your way around book layout, all the better.
