Become a Festival Volunteer

If you would like to actively participate in the Festival this year, we would love to hear from you! We are seeking volunteers work or half- or full-day blocks over the weekend of 20th to 22nd October.

Volunteers will work together in small groups across our venues to ensure the smooth running of Festival sessions. Activities may include checking tickets, staffing doors and assisting festival attendees.

Briefing, training and support will be provided as part of the Festival Volunteer Program. You’ll also receive free entry to the session/s you are stationed at!

If you would like to know more, please contact volunteers@ballaratwritersfestival.com with your name and number and our Volunteer Coordinator will get in touch with you.

Come join us – you’ll be a part of our community and the first large-scale literary event for Ballarat!
