Registration and training for volunteers has been cancelled for this year, as a result of the cancellation of the Newcaste Writers Festival 2020. Please note that none of the planned training sessions will take place.

NWF is a non-profit organisation run by a small team on grants and sponsorships. Our volunteers play a key role in the success of the festival. Without volunteers to help us, the festival couldn’t run. We’ve been very fortunate to have wonderful volunteers since the first festival in 2013, and every year brings new people and reliable returnees.

The health and safety of our writers, audiences and volunteers are our priority.
