Volunteer at EWF!

Volunteer Applications for EWF 2017 have now closed. If you’ve applied, we’ll be in touch shortly!

Do you like wearing colourful t-shirts? Are you good at answering questions? Then you might just be the perfect Emerging Writers’ Festival volunteer for our 2017 Festival. Our volunteers play a vital role in the festival and we couldn’t do it without them. 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 today!

Volunteer duties include assisting festival staff in ushering & checking tickets. Note that all volunteers must be able to commit to half a day on the Writers’ Conference weekend ( June 17-18) plus two other festival events across Wednesday June 14 – Friday June 23.

There will also be a festival briefing on Monday May 29 at 5.15pm at The Wheeler Centre. It will be essential that you are able to attend this event.

In return, volunteers will be given access to all events (except sold out events and Writers Night School events). Naturally our love, too!

To apply, please provide the following information:

• Your contact details (name, phone number, email etc.)
• Your availability for the festival ( we understand this may change closer to the dates, but if you could give us a rough idea)
• Why you want to participate, plus any relevant skills or experience you might have.

We look forward to hearing from you!
