Portland NaNo Message Board › National Novel Editing Month (NaNoEdMo) looking for a community liaison
Hood River, OR
Hi everyone! NaNoEdMo (every March) is a much smaller event than NaNoWriMo, but we're revamping the website and hoping to revitalize the event.
While we're rebuilding the site, we're also looking for someone to fill the volunteer position of Community Liaison (CL). What does a Community Liaison do, you ask? The CL is in charge of the Forum Moderators and the Red Pen Luminaries (RPLs -- EdMo's equivalent of MLs).
Responsibilities of the CL:
• Oversee the moderators of 22 forums
• Recruit additional volunteer moderators as needed
• Assist moderators on escalated issues within the forums
• Oversee RPLs of 10 regions world-wide
• Recruit additional volunteer RPLs as needed
• Assist RPLs on escalated issues within the regional forums and within physical regions
• Keep in contact with moderators and RPLs via email, before, during, and after March.
• The bulk of work for the CL occurs between the months of January and March, though we are looking to expand our editing resources to be available and fresh all year long in the near future.
EdMo is run by a small group of people currently spread all over the United States, so your physical location in the world doesn't matter. We usually stay in contact via email and through online chat meetings.
This is a fantastic way to meet new people from all over the globe, gain work experience that will look great on any resume, and help keep the creative effort of writers alive and well. In reality, what could be better than that?
If this seems like something you would be interested in doing, please email nanoedmo(at)yahoo.com and include any experience you may have and why you think you would be a good Community Liaison. Please note: experience is not necessary, but very welcome.
We are hoping to fill this position before our new website launch in February, so please get your emails in no later than this Saturday, January 12, 2013. I apologize for the short notice.
Thanks in advance to anyone interested, and Happy New Year!
Awesome news, John! I would love to help out - the above sounds like a bit much for me, but split a few ways it could work. Keep me in the loop and let me know how I can help.
