Calling all Ball State student writers

Who are you writing for? Why do you write?

These are big questions.

I want to help you help our community with your writing skillz. (That’s right with a z!)

I’m assembling a League of Extraordinary Writers who want to improve their writing and make an impact in the Muncie community. Over the past few years, I’ve committed myself to helping local organizations tell and share their stories, but there are more stories than I can tell. I need help. I need you!

This League of Extraordinary Writers will work with organizations like the Leadership Board, Big Brothers Big Sisters, TEAMwork for Quality Living, and the Facing Project. Writers will take on assignments with deadlines and have their work featured in newsletters and blogs.

What’s in it for you?

Other than the warm fuzzy feeling that you are making a positive impact in our community, you’ll have some shiny clips to feature in your writing portfolio, interact with a community of writers, including me, and, let’s face it, giving back looks awfully good on your resume.

I’m excited to help you develop story angles and answer any writing method/career questions.

Here’s what you need to do

1. RSVP on Facebook to meet On March 13th at the Innovation Connector located at 1208 W. White River Blvd in Muncie (not too far from campus) at 7PM. I’ll explain how we’ll work together and upcoming assignments of which you can choose to be a part.

2. Write your first assignment: 300 words on someone who has helped you get to where you are today and where you would’ve been without them. These will be given to the Leadership Board and potentially used on their blog. The assignment will be due on March 20th.

Who’s with me?

Very energetic article, I loved that a lot. Will there be a
part 2?

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about
switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?

Any help would be really appreciated!

Let your voice be heard!
