Volunteer Information


The Porch Press depends on a team of dedicated volunteers to assist in putting the paper together each month. Additional volunteers with either proofreading or layout skills are always welcome.

Our proofreading night is held at 6:30pm on the first Monday of the month. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Coordinating Editor Lyn Hilman at .

Layout night is held at 7:00 pm on the first Tuesday of each month following proofreading night. Volunteers with experience in using QuarkXPress on Macintosh computers are especially needed. If you would like to join us, please contact Production Manager Henry Bryant (EACA Board Member) at 404-377-6148.

Proofreading and layout take place at Adams Realtors at 458 Cherokee Avenue in Grant Park. Dinner is provided. Please join us in helping to bring The Porch Press to our neighborhoods.
