This is where I’ll be posting opportunities for volunteers (whether members or just supporters) to help the guild with specific tasks. They might be either one-time or ongoing. This isn’t a complete list yet, so expect periodic updates and edits.
Current volunteer needs:
Help with keeping the conbook page up to date.
This takes the most time of any of the Furry Writers’ Market pages, since I have to go to the con’s website, dig around for conbook info (which sometimes isn’t even listed), and get it put into the listing format used here. If someone would like to take on the task of checking this calendar periodically and emailing me the new listings, that would save me a good amount of time and keep the page updated more often.
Help with keeping our Wikifur pages for the FWG and Cóyotl Awards up to date.
Located here and here, respectively. This is one of those tasks that I have the capability to do, but it tends to fall by the wayside. For one thing, I’d like to see that member list on the FWG page taken out entirely and replaced with links to the directory pages on the website (writers and associates).
Designing a single-sided FWG flyer, suitable for easy home printing. This can be either a full 8-1/2 x 11" sheet (portrait) or with 2 per sheet (landscape). Ideally, should look good in both color and black and white.
Writing/compiling a glossary of contract terms and simple explanations of contract basics, to form the basis of a new “Contracts” page for our website. I tried searching for something to link to a while back, but everything I found was either too incomplete or too outdated.
Art! We can always use more art for flyers, ads, and merchandise – whether it’s character art or something more like a logo. Draw it, color it, send it in! Obviously it should be furry- and writing-related in some way and appropriate for all audiences, but those are the only restrictions.
If you can help with any of these tasks, please contact me via PM or email (furwritersguild at gmail), or post here.
