Thank you to the 350 Volunteers who made our 30th anniversary Festival the best one yet! Volunteers contributed thousands of hours to the 2017 Festival, assisting with front of house, box office, book sales, author hospitality, raffle ticket sales, and so much more. We couldn’t do this without you.
We welcome returning and first-time volunteers every fall as we gear up for our October Festival. Of the 300 plus volunteers we depend upon every year to help stage six days of events featuring a hundred authors and attracting more than 17,000 readers, about 100 of them are first-timers. If you’d like to be one of our first-time volunteers this year, please review the following pages for information about volunteer jobs, our hours expectations, the benefits we offer and the policies we ask volunteers to follow. Lastly, there is a link to our online registration pages. We look forward to hearing from you!

I tell anyone who will listen to me what a great event the Vancouver Writers Fest is and I will continue to do that. Some of those people were attendees and volunteers this year which also added to my enjoyment.
