In addition to being a member of the HWG Guild, you can contribute in other ways as well. We are always looking for eager volunteers that want to connect with fellow creators and give back to the writing community here in Houston. Whether it’s helping out at one of our events or helping get the word out on social media, as a volunteer-run organization, we can always use a hand.
