How can I volunteer with writing?
So I love to write, which is why I'm pursuing Professional Writing as my major. However, I also love to volunteer. Is there a way I can combine my two loves and volunteer to write?
Hi! I'm so glad whenever I read about people who are interested in volunteering! It's something I've been doing for a long time and I also organize people to volunteer as a career now! www.volunteermatch.org is a great resource to begin your search! You can look for local organizations and search by interest as well. Good luck!

That is an excellent question, and I am happy to connect with someone who has a passion for writing as I do! I beleive a good way to have the best of both worlds is to offer to do a volunteer blog post for for a blogger whom you admire. It's an excellent opportunity for exposure, and to master your craft. You can also consider volunteer work and a writing tutor for high school or adult learners.
I think it's great you want to use your writing skills as a volunteer. Librarians and youth outreach programs are very helpful and often have writing programs for children and young adults.
