I'd just list it under the Experience header and say something like:

Subject: Volunteer Work on a Resume?

I've volunteered through an e-mail
conversation to edit Web pages for a
fairly prominent scientific
organization. (I had sent a message with
an editorial correction for an article
on special relativity, a subject in
which I am interested. I received a
thankful response and in my response to
that, I offered to help as a volunteer
if they needed an editor. A couple of
days later I got another thankful e-mail
and some details on an assignment that I
could do.

I'd love to round out my experience with
this, but I'm not sure about the best
way to refer to it on my resume. I'm not
jobhunting now, but I've learned to
always have the resume at the ready,
because one never knows what's coming.

Perhaps in the future, if they like my
work, they'd offer money, but in the
meantime, is there anything wrong with
putting this on my resume? If not, any
suggestions about how to present it? I'm
drawing a complete blank.

Spanish aunts,
