Volunteer

Thank you to the more than 300 Volunteers who made our 2018 Festival the best one yet! Volunteers contributed thousands of hours, 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.

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.
