Volunteer registration is now open for the 2023 festival. We’ve been very fortunate to have wonderful volunteers since the inaugural festival in 2013, and every year we welcome both reliable returnees and new faces.
Our general goal for all volunteers is to help our audience and guest writers to have a great festival experience. We want to keep building on the reputation we’ve earned for being a friendly, relaxed and hospitable festival.
You can do one shift or as many as you like. You nominate the times you’re available, and the types of roles you’d be happy to undertake.
The roles we generally roster are:
Session usher Information table
Roving assistant Book signing area
Survey Team Accessibility assistant
Set up/pack down Floater/gofer
Volunteer room aide Green Room aide
We ask all new volunteers and those who haven’t volunteered for the past three years to attend an orientation session prior to the festival. These are mainly held via Zoom and we will also run one in-person training session if there is sufficient demand.
