Volunteers setting up lunches at 2011 Annual Conference






James River Writers is operated 99 percent by volunteers who serve on our board of directors, advisory board, and committees.

To help JRW continue its mission for the next 10 years, these standing committees need your help:

  • Communications — People with PR experience
  • Technology — Videographers and photographers to cover events and capture material for website, people to develop/manage Tumblr and YouTube channels

To support JRW’s programs, these committees need the following assistance:

  • Annual Conference — Local authors — especially poets, non-fiction, and short story writers — willing to participate in sessions, other volunteers to support conference
  • Master Classes — Writing professionals willing to teach a half-day workshop

There are many other ways you can volunteer for JRW. Contact our program director Annette Marquis for other opportunities not listed here, or if you have time and talents that could be put to good use.
