Creative Writer/ Story-teller

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


The Creative Writer is part of the team responsible for the writting content for our website, blog, social media and newsletter. In this role you’ll be asked to weave stories about the work we do and people we serve in a way that engages our readers. This can involve a combination of written text, art, photos, video, and music, or through only written text.

We are also looking for Copywriters/Journalists to author content for CEN’s website, newsletter, and blog from existing contents, as well as original content. For more information on this position, please see: Copywriter/Journalist .

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Develop and write stories about the work we do and people we served based on actual situations, where possible. In some cases where specific actual characters or situations are not available to flesh out the story, it may be necessary to embellish the story with details based on an amalgamation of different individuals and situations.

KSAs (Knowledge, Skills and Abilities) Needed:

  • Strong communications and creative writing skills

  • Creative

  • Empathetic

  • Self-directed

  • Commitment to CEN’s mission and strong interest in international development issues

You must be able to commit to a minimum average of 10 hours a month. This is a "virtual" team opportunity which may be performed from home or another location.

Community Empowerment Network's (CEN’s) operations are nearly entirely driven by the efforts of volunteers (the only exception is our Field Manager in SantarĂ©m, Brazil, who is paid under contract). We are a small organization and so lines of responsibility sometimes overlap, but this provides a terrific opportunity for volunteers to take on a variety of responsibilities and to expand their skills. See How Our Teams Work for more information.
