Two (2) Volunteers for Horror University

The Horror University team needs two Assistant Coordinators to work with the Coordinators in planning, scheduling, and running Horror University Online and Horror University at StokerCon. The work will include gathering and compiling information from instructors about their workshops, such as images and support materials to set up classes.

Assistant Coordinators may also help with running actual workshops online or in-person as needed. The time commitment will be cyclical, requiring two to three hours per week for up to four weeks during the scheduling phase and one to two hours a week during a Horror University Online session for up to six weeks.
