Watch Me Bounce is accepting new staff members! Interested in resilience? Join us! Watch Me Bounce is growing, and is currently accepting new volunteers in the following areas:


  • Editors and Assistant Editors: Join our Editorial Board. Editors are responsible for reviewing submissions, judging and managing our contests and ensuring the vision of Watch Me Bounce. We are also looking for proofreaders.


  • Staff Writers: A large part of our content comes from submissions outside Watch Me Bounce, but we are always on the look out for the best talent. If you feel you can contribute to the website more than once, and share a passion for what we do, consider becoming a staff writer.


  • Book Reviewers: Do you enjoy reading? If so, consider becoming a columnist for our book review section. Watch Me Bounce reviews both fiction and nonfiction books on “resilience,” and is always in need of voracious readers who are passionate about this subject.


  • Marketers and Contest Managers: Have a zest for promotion? Since Watch Me Bounce is a growing website, we are in constant need of marketers to help promote our website, our stories and poetry and our vision. If you want to help spread the word about Watch Me Bounce,  work on a specific campaign, or have an idea for a market strategy, we would be happy to hear from you. Contest Managers form the backbone of our writing competitions, and assist in all aspects from contest creation to promotion to entry review.
