Nothing About Us, Without Us!
ASAN is looking for autistic writers for our communications team! We need volunteers with strong writing, journalism, or editing skills who are comfortable writing in a variety of formats (short informational articles, longer writeups and interviews, tipsheets and factsheets, news blurbs, action alerts, etc.) with quick turn-around. Experience with plain language is a plus. The time commitment is 3-5 hours a week, including weekly communications team check-in and planning meetings.
The ASAN communications team produces a wide range of material for the ASAN newsletter, website, and other communications platforms and campaigns. The communications team makes sure that our message of autism acceptance, neurodiversity, and disability rights is carried far and wide, that current and respectful information about autism, disability, and neurodiversity is readily available, and that the conversation about autistic people hears *our* voices first. We cannot do this without your help.
Interested volunteers should send two writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org.
