I love the atmosphere in the Festival. There is so much appreciation for the written word, and so many like-minded people gather from all sides of the literary world. I had an amazing time volunteering last year. Between the other volunteers and the Festival-goers, I met some of the loveliest, most encouraging and intelligent people I've ever met.
