Dorchester Literary Festival 2017Volunteering At Dorchester Literary Festival

We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to work at this year’s Dorchester Literary Festival.

The festival will run from 16th - 20th October 2019, and will feature a host of prominent writers, poets and political minds.

As a volunteer, you’ll be allowed free entry to all of our events (subject to available space). You may also have the chance to meet some of the authors and we’ll provide refreshments throughout your shifts.

Volunteer work looks great on the CV, and we’re happy to give references if you want. The work is not difficult, but is essential to the smooth running of events. You might be responsible for ticket-selling, ushering, dealing with enquiries from the public, assisting authors and publishers, or set moving and cleaning.

This year we are looking for volunteers who can work a minimum of two shifts.

If you’d like to apply to be a volunteer, please complete and submit the online form by mid September.
