Writer’s Portfolio Building: Non-profit work

If you are a new writer with a heart and you are looking to expand your portfolio, try doing some charity work. You can volunteer your writing services to a community organization or a non-profit organization in your local area. It helps if you truly care about the cause, because it will make you feel good inside, in addition to bulking up your portfolio. You can create ads, articles, and/or press releases to promote the organization, or even write copy for flyers to advertise an upcoming event. If you would like, you can offer them discounted on services for extended work, and build a long term relationship with them.

It is great to give back to your community, and it may even turn into a business deal. They may even refer you to other organizations of a similar mind. Check online, drive around town, and check in your local newspaper for opportunities. Writing for charity and non-profit organizations is a great way to network and expand your portfolio at the same time.
