I’m interested in getting one or more volunteers for The Smokey Wire. I’ve accumulated way more interesting stories than I have been able to find the time to post. Also, there are many I need to write myself to explore areas that the news hasn’t covered.
It could be as simple as taking a list from me and posting the links and excerpts on The Smokey Wire. I actually got paid to do this for another outlet until I was abruptly fired for interjecting my opinion, so this activity might look good on a future resume. And of course, you would be welcome to add your own opinions and questions for discussion. There would be little or no pressure to produce by a certain time period, as I say to guest contributors, our issues are not going away soon so there’s no hurry.
I was thinking it would be a good experience for a student, since students have contacted me and told me how helpful TSW has been to their studies. On the other hand, it might be good for retirees as well. And of course, I’d be willing to train anyone in how to use WordPress.
Working with me: I think I’m fairly easy to work with, although others might disagree. I’ve mentored many people in the FS and supervised many. I’ve got all the academic credentials, and have served on student committees in the past. I’m willing to do the paperwork to have a formal internship if desirable.
It’s fun for me, and it might well be fun for you! Plus educational, learning new skills and all that. Please consider it. If you have questions or are interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
