Since stepping in as an emergency candidate in 2021, I have led the guild and gradually began to implement new ways for the FWG to expand its reach. I feel like I am still at the beginning of that journey, with some of those visions yet to come to fruition.

As such, I would like to officially declare my intention to run for another term as guild president. I am proud of the work I have achieved so far, and still have a lot of energy to put into bettering the guild.

I feel like the community is thriving. The guild is in the best place possible to take the next step into bettering the state of furry writing. Since last year, I have been able to start the implementation of guest blogs. With fundraising initiatives like Patreon, regular book bundles, and a guild anthology, I hope to ensure that the FWG is able to get itself into a position to financially assist writers with advertising assistance.

My work has been built on the hard work laid down by the presidents before me. I feel like the guild is currently in a better place than when I started 3 years ago, but my work is not yet done.

With your backing, I would like to see a fourth term to see these plans come to life.

Hi! My name is Vincenzo “Scribbles” Pasquarella and I am announcing my candidacy for Markets Manager.

It has been fun being able to help promote calls for anthologies in my time as Market Manager. As someone who also had a hand in editing two anthologies in the past two years, it has been amazing to see more writers get involved with furry writing through our markets this year. I hope to continue finding exciting calls to share with you all!

It’s hard to believe it’s already been three years since I first stood for vice president. In those three years the guild has built on the work of previous guild officers to achieve financial stability as a nonprofit. This has allowed us greater reach and more options to help members achieve success, such as the upcoming guild anthology. I would be proud to continue supporting Jaye and our other officers for another year, so hereby declare my intention to run for another term as vice president.

Such a good slate of folks for election!

Hello! I am Resolute, and I’m re-running for Public Relations Officer. We’ve definitely had some major strides in the past several years and I hope to continue supporting the Guild through its continued growth. I do intend on continuing with projects such as the FWG News Podcast, as well as backend assistance with documenting Guild processes.

And, if I may modify the podcast outro: if you’re looking for a sign to step up and run for an open role (or even an existing one), or to help out the Guild in other respects, this is it!
