PPW is searching for some enthusiastic fellow writers who would like to be more involved with the organization. In fact, we have four opportunities for people to help PPW, give back to the community of writers, and we won’t even mind if you use the experience on your resume.
First, our Blog Editor, Donnell Bell, needs bloggers on a broad variety of topics. If you’re a blogger (or would like to be), contact Donnell directly at Editor@pikespeakwriters.com.
We also need a Contest Director for the Zebulon Writing Contest. Responsibilities include yearly review and updates of categories, rules, and judging instructions; recruiting judges; coordinating with our traditional and social media; and presenting the awards at the conference banquet. If you have questions or are interested, please drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following on the heels of Contest Director, we’ll need judges for this year’s contest. Keep your eyes on the website and social media, because that’s where the call will come out!
Writers Night is looking for a co-host. Held the fourth Monday of every month, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Writers Night is an informal gathering where you can hang out with your fellow writers and ask any sort of questions about writing. Our current host, Deb Courtney, is looking for someone to co-lead the group, and possibly eventually take over. If you’re interested, contact her at Deb.Courtney@comcast.net.
The final position is that of Volunteer Coordinator. We’re in the process of building a volunteer database, but we need the human part of the equation to manage it. This position is wide-open right now—you’d be creating your own job description as you figure it out. This does require you to be able to cheerfully and politely work with a wide variety of people. If this sounds like your kind of challenge, please contact J.T. Evans: President@pikespeakwriters.com.
We love our volunteers, and Pikes Peak Writers would not exist without them. If you’d like to join this particular Scooby Gang, come on it! The water’s just fine.
