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. Applications for the Spring 2015 training go live in December!
  • Successful applicants must attend NYWC’s mandatory Workshop Leader Training.

Join the NYWC Volunteer Corps

NYWC has a variety of opportunities to become a part of the NYWC Volunteer Corps. This is a great way to give back to others and be part of a friendly, positive and creative community. NYWC is made up of  people passionate about the power of creative writing and the idea that everyone has a voice and an important story to tell.

Our volunteers are an integral part of our community, however, we are not currently accepting any applications for new volunteers at this time. We thank you for your interest in NYWC and hope that you will check back in when we have new opportunities.
