Volunteer

The Vancouver Writers Fest Volunteers contributed  5,000+ hours in 2019, making a positive impact on front of house, box office, book sales, author hospitality, raffle ticket sales, and so much more. We wouldn’t be able to do this without you!

Thank you to the 330 Volunteers who made our 2019 Festival the best one yet.

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.
