Volunteer Opportunities

“Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one’s ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them.” — Harriet Naylor

 

PPW exists solely based on the blood, sweat, and talent of our outstanding volunteers. No board member, event facilitator, blog editor, conference director, webmaster, or social media guru is paid staff. All you see and experience with Pikes Peak Writes comes from the combined dedication of writers just like you! And we would love to have you join us.

Volunteering is fun! It is a great way to make new friends, network within the writing world, improve your craft, and share your experiences with others. Only by the infusion of new personalities and new ideas can our organization adapt and grow to the ever-changing demands of the publishing world.

See something about PPW you love? Volunteer and help keep it running. See something you want fixed? Volunteer and help make those changes.

PPW volunteer terms are typically two years long, to generate some continuity. Contact our current Volunteer Coordinator with any questions.
