Call for 3 Volunteer Writers: Online Workshop

I've almost got a system worked out to start an online collaborative writers workshop. The final elements will fall into place soon, after which I will need 3-4 writers *coughguineapigscough* to volunteer their participation in an ONLINE 3-week collaborative short story workshop--just to test out the system.

Volunteer Writers would commit to:
  • Meet online once a week for 3 weeks (First session, 90 minutes; following sessions, 60 minutes) 
  • Collaborate story ideas with other writers
  • Contribute creative writing to a group document on a weekly basis
  • Give feedback on the process and direction for improvement
Volunteer writers must be 16 years of age or older. They will also need to be able to communicate via email and have a reliable internet connection.

We can talk about different meeting days, but I'm initially thinking Wednesday evenings, around 7:30 MST.

If you're interested in volunteering, post a comment here or email me at mangycat (at) gmail (dot) com. 

Looking forward to writing with you!


  1. I am interested in being a volunteer writer

  2. @Chula: Awesome! That would be great. Could you send me an email so that I have your address? I'll keep you posted on when we're going to start.

    @Mir: Thanks for the confirmation! I have your email already, so I'll keep you posted.

    We have another college student who has volunteered via email, plus we could get my friend Midget as well.

    We'll be ready to go once I have everyone's commitment and email address!

  3. Do you know if we'll be starting pretty soon? I'm excited!! :D

  4. I was just thinking about how I really needed to get us going. Just recently heard back from Chula with her email address. Soon, soon! Thanks for your patience!

  5. Sorry to keep poking you, but do you know if we might be doing this sometime soon when you have a chance? I'd still love to help beta test it. =D But I totally understand if you are busy. Organic Chemistry is keeping me pretty busy. :P

  6. No, it's good to keep poking me. Thank you! Yes, I would still like to Beta test this idea--most definitely. Just not sure when. Thanks for checking in!
