Join us today

Without the thoughtful assistance and commitment of our many volunteers, we would not be able to maintain the quality of courses and programs for which we are well known. 

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

AWCS Moving Team

Duration of Commitment: 2-3 days total
Dates/Times: December/January TBD
# of people required: 4-6

We are currently seeking a team of able bodied individuals to help us move. We will be cleaning out our current location in early December, most items will be donated or taken to the dump. Need people to help clean and sort and move furniture and make runs to the dump. If you have a truck, even better.
In January we will need people to help organize and decorate the new location. All furniture and equipment will already be delivered.
If you’re interested in being a part of this team, please email Robin at
Peer Critique Group Facilitators

Commitment: January to June (ongoing)
Dates/Times: once or twice a month, TBD
# of people required: 2

AWCS would like to redevelop and reintroduce peer critique groups to our programming and we are in need of a few facilitators. The facilitator would be responsible for scheduling, be the primary contact for attendees, schedule and facilitate the meetings. We are looking for a minimum of 2 facilitators, possibly more depending on demand and genre. To begin we would like a prose facilitator and a poetry facilitator, with the potential of branching the prose into individual genres, eg. young adult, literary, mystery, speculative fiction at which time we would require more facilitators.
If you’re interested in this opportunity, please email Robin at

Commitment: January to June (ongoing)
Dates/Times: Will be scheduled depending on availability (min 2 hours/month, no max.)
# of people required: as many as are willing to volunteer

As part of our new programming, AWCS will now have the capability to offer drop in writing time throughout our business day. We are looking for individuals to come and hang out for a few hours, greet people, show them around, help them get settled and write or direct them where they need to go if they are present for a class or other event. Day, evening and weekend times available.
