Volunteer

Thank you to the 350 Volunteers who made our 30th anniversary Festival the best one yet! Volunteers contributed thousands of hours to the 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.

Thank you to our 2017 Festival Volunteers!

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.
