Everything You Need to Know About The Community Club Creator Guild

At Commsor and The Community Club, we strive to elevate our members' voices. We're the community for community builders after all — so our members are the experts. We also believe that the best way to grow and evolve this industry is through sharing community knowledge. A rising tide lifts all ships, right?

With all that in mind, we launched The Community Club Creator Guild, a team of community pros who share their experiences, strategies, learnings, and more to elevate community as a whole, and become thought leaders in the space.

Through a variety of content types, the Creator Guild are regularly featured on our forum, blog, and social platforms. And before you ask: yes — they're always paid for their hard work.

Interested in joining the Guild? Here's everything you need to know.

Creator Guild FAQs

How often do I need to contribute?

Community folks are often spinning many plates — we get that. We're not putting a minimum cap on content created. That said, we're not putting a max limit on articles either. We'd love for you to contribute as much as you're able.

I'm not a professional writer — am I still eligible?

We're not on the hunt for the next Hemingway here. If you're a competent writer, we'd love to have you. Our Content team will workshop articles with you to make sure your features are perfectly publish-ready. We're also open to audio and video content — it's the Creator Guild, not writer guild. 😉

I haven't been in community for very long — is that a problem?

We're interested in learnings and unique perspectives from both seasoned community veterans and newbies. However, we do ask you focus on an area you have experience or expertise in.

Can I create content on whatever I want?

If it's community-related, the short answer is yes. But — and this is a big but — we work with our Guild to confirm each content piece before they get cracking, to avoid any duplicate or unnecessary work.

Will my work be edited?

Yes. The Creator Guild process is a collaborative one. A member of our content team will work closely with you to give your articles the attention they deserve.

Can I republish work I've already written for my own platforms?

No. All Creator Guild content is hot off the press, so to speak, and has not appeared elsewhere (like a LinkedIn blog or Medium).

Can I publish my Guild articles on my own blog?

Another no, unfortunately. Google reads duplicate content as plagiarized, and will probably hide both articles from searchers. Sad. 😕

What kind of content does the Guild write?
