Volunteer Opportunities

Become a NYWC Workshop Leader

NYWC is looking for volunteers to lead our signature writing workshops in New York City. These groups provide a safe, supportive environment in which writers can find and expand their voices, take risks in writing, and be part of a non-competitive writing community. Workshop leaders gain leadership skills while being part of a rewarding process of personal and interpersonal discovery.

  • We’re especially looking for individuals who want to write with youth, have flexible daytime schedules, and/or are interested in writing with groups who are incarcerated or formerly incarcerated through NYWC’s Justice Writing Program.
  • Complete the online application here. Application deadline extended to February 9!
  • Successful applicants must attend NYWC’s mandatory Workshop Leader Training March 20-22 and March 26, 2015.
