You make your Federation better!

We can’t say thank you often enough for the people who make the Federation of BC Writers such a dynamic, supportive organization for its members… or ask often enough for our members to find out how rewarding it is to volunteer. Through the contributions of volunteers we are able to provide news, workshops, contests, WordWorks Magazine and an array of other resources.

It’s all about ‘writers helping writers’ at the Fed. Find out more on our Volunteer Opportunities Page. A couple of hours a week, multiplied by more than 400 members, totals a huge amount of energy that will benefit us all. Here’s a couple of opportunities you might want to consider…
