We are looking for volunteer technical writers and editors for short and long projects. The unpaid, part-time work is flexible and requires at least 3 hours hours/week. The writing is English, and editors can be anywhere in the world.

We especially welcome volunteers from diverse backgrounds, including those who would benefit from having examples of their work publicly-visible on the W3C website.

Background: W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) develops strategies, standards, and supporting resources to make technology accessible to people with disabilities. For example:
* Personalization Overview https://www.w3.org/WAI/personalization/
* Making Audio and Video Media Accessible https://www.w3.org/WAI/media/av/
* many more listed at https://www.w3.org/WAI/resources/

W3C WAI provides the structure and process for developing the resources. Individuals and organizations participate to develop the resources.

We have several groups that have technical and user experience participation, and could use technical writing skills to help edit their drafts. Many of those projects are listed in:
	What We're Working On - Accessibility Activities and Publications

*A current need* is someone who can proactively gather input from users and subject matter experts (who are already in the group) to refine several short resources on low vision accessibility.

If you might be interested in contributing your technical editing skills, please send e-mail to: shawn@w3.org *and* cc: team-wai-projects@w3.org (W3C-staff-only). Start the e-mail subject line with “[Volunteer] Technical Editing”. Include:
* Brief info on your experience and/or education in technical writing and editing
* Your availability, including when you can start and how many hours/week you can contribute
* Link to information about you online, such as LinkedIn profile and/or personal bio page

If  you know of others who might be interested, please do forward this information to them.

Thanks much!
