Writer Helper

Do you have experience writing novels? Are you looking to help other writers develop?

We are looking for a volunteer to help one of YSM’s community members with writing. The community member is looking to complete a novel they are working on, however they are visually impaired and in need of some assistance. The volunteer would help them with developing ideas and the flow of material, but also with typing the work – developing sentence structure and such.

We are looking for a volunteer with:

– strong typing/computer skills

– a well-developed understanding of the English language including written composition structure

– a good sense of English grammar

– strong writing skills

– patience, compassion and empathy

– experience with creative writing, specifically novel writing (a strong asset)


You are available during the day on Monday or Friday to meet for a few hours (to be determined), every other week.


You will be meeting at YSM’s offices at Gerrard and Parliament.
