We’re currently looking for volunteers for the following positions.
As stated previously, all positions are unpaid, volunteers positions. Foundry Hub is a hobby, non-profit project and nobody in the team is getting compensated for the time they spend on this website.
Therefore, we do not expect professional quality work from our team members either, we’re doing our best but only while having fun.
This is an admin position that handles management tasks and relations inside and outside of the team. You are the person to talk about existing and potentially new content on Foundry Hub and questions about the editorial procedures. In addition, our official partners (Foundry Gaming, /r/FoundryVTT subreddit, Content Creators) will be in contact with you regarding anything related to content. And you will have a direct say on what gets published and when.
- Scheduling of published content.
- Work and communicate with Foundry Hub Partners.
- Accept and reject contributions and articles.
- Organize Team Meetings
Availability: You should be around on Discord regularly to answer questions/requests and, apart from that, be able to dedicate a few hours each week.
As an editor, you will work on drafts from community contributors and Foundry Hub Writers to help and tune the drafts into a ready-to-publish state. This will include making sure articles are of good quality and make sense for the reader. The articles have a pleasing layout and will look good on the page. They include all relevant metadata like tags, related modules, etc.
Experience with WordPress can be helpful but is not necessary.
- Work directly with the authors of articles to ensure changes to the article are approved.
- Edit drafts to help the readability, understanding and fitting of the text by adding and/or removing parts.

Availability: You should be able to dedicate a few hours each month to work on articles.
Each content that is published on Foundry Hub should ideally have been going through multiple sets. As an assistant editor, you will be in the quality control department and proofread articles to sanity check against typos and grammar issues and check if links and media are working correctly. You also give the okay if the article was understandable to you as a reader or if some parts need more clarity.
Being well versed or a native speaker of the English language is desired here.
- Proof read content.
- Spot and correct spelling and grammar mistakes.
- Double check media files and links to be working correctly.
- Give feedback if the content is understandable or needs more clarity.
Availability: You should be able to read through some content each month. This position needs the least time investment, but it needs to be done sometimes on short notice.
We at Foundry Hub have the goal to produce content of our own instead of relying solely on contributions from the community. Such content includes recurring articles like Module Roundup and Community Spotlight, non-technical summaries about new Foundry VTT releases, and covering relevant news.
As a writer, you don’t have to do all of those mentioned, but you can decide what interests and motivates you. You are also welcome to present new ideas or series of articles you would like to write about.
- Write content for Foundry Hub (you decide what you want to focus on):
- Cover relevant news about Foundry VTT and its community.
- Recurring articles you are interested in and can commit to.
- Guides and highlights about modules, systems or anything that might be interesting.
- Other ideas.
- Opportunity to come up for new content ideas.
Availability: Depending on what you want to write about, the availability might differ. But in any case, you should be able to commit to a certain amount of content you feel comfortable with each month.
