Volunteer with us

We are seeking people to join our dedicated team of  volunteers for our 2022 festival, which will be held from April 1 to 3. Each year 160 volunteers support the program in a range of roles – from checking tickets to guiding writers to their events. We couldn’t do it without you.

We’re looking for people who love books, enjoy interacting with people, and want to help make the Newcastle Writers Festival a success. We also do our best to ensure you enjoy your time as a volunteer and get the most out of the festival.

If you’d like to know a little more before registering, please read Being a Volunteer 2022.
