Are you a graphic designer, artist, copyeditor, publishing professional, or just someone who doesn’t mind typing up funny stories? Volunteer to help out with our publications!

Spells Writing Lab publishes a chapbook filled with student writing after each classroom program and gives a copy to each child who participated. We’re always in need of people to help type these stories, copyedit and proofread the text, design interior and cover layouts, and help our staff assemble the books.

We also produce writing collections with our tutoring students and summer campers, and occasionally need illustration or design expertise for writing workshops. (There are also opportunities for designers who would like to create promotional materials such as bookmarks, posters, and brochures for our organization.)

Whether you’ve been in the business for years, or are still in art school, you can use your art to make a difference. Sign up to be a Spells volunteer today!
