Volunteer at EWF!

Apply to volunteer at the Emerging Writers’ Festival

The 2020 Emerging Writers’ Volunteer Call-out is currently closed. Thank you for your interest. 

Do you like wearing colourful T-shirts? Are you great at answering questions? Then you might be the perfect Emerging Writers’ Festival volunteer! If you’d like to help out at some of the best festival events going ’round, meet other writers, and get an inside look at how an arts festival is run, apply to be part of the festival!

Our volunteers play a vital role in the festival and we couldn’t do it without them.

Volunteer duties include assisting festival staff in ushering, checking tickets and artist liaison. Note that all volunteers must be able to commit to half a day on the Writers’ Conference weekend plus two other festival events.

In return, volunteers will be given access to almost all events (except sold out events and Writers’ Night School events).

Applications to volunteer at the festival open in April each year.
