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 and 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 Sheila Sheppard Lovelady for other opportunities not listed here, or if you have time and talents that could be put to good use.
