Our flagship Festival will take place October 18–24, 2021. While health regulations continue to evolve, we are currently planning a hybrid festival, which means the potential return of some in-person events.

Volunteers are the backbone of the Vancouver Writers Fest, and we look forward to being able to recruit more volunteers this year after 2020’s digital-only Festival. 

Volunteer opportunities will be shared closer to Festival season, in August. Until then, please use our contact form for specific inquiries.

Volunteer activities may include: 

  • Program Guide Distribution
  • Author Hospitality
  • Administration
  • Box Office
  • Book Sales
  • Raffle Ticket Sales
  • Social Media Support
  • Photography and Video

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.
