Help us to make our 30th-anniversary Festival one to remember by registering as a volunteer. Volunteer roles are available for a variety of skill levels and availabilities during the Festival and throughout the year, including box office, front of house, production, transportation, food and beverage and more.

Each year, more than 300 volunteers contribute 3,900 hours to the Festival and help us build a vibrant literary community in Vancouver – will you join them?

Volunteer registration for 2017 will open on August 24. Please note: returning volunteers will be scheduled first, followed by new volunteers.

Once volunteer registration has begun, please review our Volunteer Policies and Benefits, followed by Volunteer Job Descriptions, to determine if this is the right opportunity for 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.
