The Tasmanian Writers & Readers Festival, on behalf of our artists and audiences, cannot thank enough our many dedicated volunteers without whom this Festival would not happen. 

We’re calling out for volunteers to be part of our 2017 Tasmanian Writers & Readers Festival 14-17 September, Hadley’s Orient Hotel, Hobart.

The festival is four exciting days of debate, discussion, author talks and readings with a great line-up of festival guests.

Volunteering is a great way to be involved plus all our volunteers receive a bag of goodies and free access to regular sessions in return for shifts worked.

There are several volunteer roles we need to help the festival run smoothly. We would love to know what may interest you – from pre-festival publicity drops, office assistance, ushering, box office, being part of our artist transport team and artist liaison.

We’re asking volunteers to give at least two shifts (approx. 4.5 hours each). Volunteer orientation and induction will be provided. You don’t need experience; just a willingness to be part of the team in making this a fun and successful event.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you! Please complete the online expression of interest form by 18 August. The form can be saved, filled out digitally and e-mailed.

Any questions or further information, please call us at the office on (03) 6224 0029 or email volunteers@taswriters.org
