Volunteer reporters & bloggers produce or contribute to written content (usually 500-1500 words) for print or digital distribution. This may involve going to various community events (ex. river cleanups, tree plantings, workshops) to gather pictures, videos, interviews, etc for the PEN, E-PEN, and/or website. It may also involve writing on topics of special interest to the volunteer that are relevant to the environment or social justice without attending events.

This is a flexible roll suitable for individuals of all ability levels and time commitments. Whether you contribute one article once, or several on an ongoing basis, we're happy to have you be part of the PERC community. Professional writing skills are NOT a prerequisite as we have editorial volunteers to help with that!

Articles should be relevant to the local community (international issues are okay so long as the piece links it back to the reader locally) and touch on an issue related to the environment, social justice, or peace. PERC cultivates a supportive, pro-active approach to issues and articles should take that tone as much as possible - verbal abuse, partisan politics, etc. are not appropriate. Topics which can lead into a practical action are ideal.

Photographs to accompany articles are welcome and encouraged - volunteers primarily interested in photography are also welcome to apply.
