Do you have leadership skills or organizational skills? Are you interested in fundraising or helping tweens and teens? Or do you just want to write? Whatever it is, we can find a way for you to get involved. Volunteer opportunities range from random one-hour assignments to a year-long commitment and are available in different locations, including many from the comfort of your own home.

I volunteered for Willamette Writers because writing can be a lonely endeavor, and I needed to connect with other writers. Since volunteering, not only have I forged strong friendships with other writers and people in the literary world, I have made strides as a writer, gained marketing skills, and learned that technology need not be scary.

~ Gail Pasternack

At the most basic level, we are looking for members who are serious, patient, appreciative, independent, enjoy helping others, and are willing to learn and try new things.

Here are some examples of activities performed by Willamette Writers volunteers:

  • Engaging with our community on social media
  • Creating graphic designs for our marketing efforts
  • Helping out at our local chapters
  • Providing technical support
  • Helping with fundraising efforts
  • Critique group coordination
  • Volunteer coordination
  • And much more…

Thank you for your support.
