There is joy in seeing writers, participants and Festival-goers happy and satisfied, stimulated and excited! The range of people you meet, work with and mix with is just awesome and you learn from it every year. It’s just an all-round positive experience and there’s nothing like it!

I have enjoyed contributing to a cultural highlight of the city with people who are just as excited as I am about mixing with interesting thinkers, readers, and writers. The buzz of the volunteers is infectious, and I always look forward to catching up with volunteers I've worked with before and then making new friends.
