Want to come and work at CO+K?

We may not have money but we do know how to make cupcakes!

If you've got some spare time over the summer and would like to help out with CO+K then we've got lots of little jobs that you guys could work on. First up, we're wanting to get a small team of bloggers together to scour the internet for interesting creative and craft finds and write them up in our blog. This could also involve writing book reviews, product reviews, profiles on various craft companies and interviews.

If writing's not your thing, we're also looking for people to help approve new projects, categorize and tidy up the Craftopedia - it may not sound very interesting, but it wont take too long.

One thing we really need to do is spread the word about CO+K and just let people know we exist, so we're keen to set up a street team who would work, online and offline, to spread the word with stickers, posters, board posts etc.

Most importantly, we need people to think - think up new ideas, new competitions, who we should interview and make crafty superstars, think up new improvements and features for the site, etc. etc.

Most of these can be done via the internet, but if you are in London and would like to pop along to our Mew in Maida Vale - we'll be more than happy to set you up with a chair and some desk space where you can write, review books, test out some products or just craft away!

Send us a message if you're interested.

Hey guys, sorry I didn't get back to you about this - we had visitors come to stay.

Anyway, we'd love to have you all!

I love the idea of a street team:
I'm thinking; handmade tshirts, leaflets, badges, etc etc.

We could even have a craft open-day or coffee morning for recruiting new members.
I know a church hall nearby that don't charge, and I have loads of craft materials (as I'm sure we all do).
I guess the only problem with that is having other CO&K member nearby :/

What do you guys think?

yeah that sounds awesome, could you introduce a friend to CO&K that may want to help you recruit members?

Cat/Tom, maybe one of you could design a logo or two that we could print out and stick it on a shirt (however we want, to show off our creativeness!) and just wear it around to advertise the site. WE could also put the design on bags too.

Mmn, definately!
I have a whole bunch of crafty friends at Liverpool Tate who I'm sure I could rope in ;)

Not sure if you're still wanting people but I'd love to help out! I could spread the word on my side of the world (Australia) if you wanted!
