We welcome new volunteers throughout the year. There is an incredible selection of volunteer positions for you to choose from. Whether your interest is in literary readings, summer festivals, working with children or office support, you will surely be able to find something that fits your interest and schedules.
The volunteer programme is divided into three categories: Volunteer Contributor, Volunteer Enthusiast and Volunteer Leader. Each programme has different time commitments and benefits. It is our goal to develop and nurture all of these programmes and to build a solid, dedicated volunteer base throughout the years.
