Volunteer to Join Team WWC

World War One Enlistment Poster: New names in Canadian 
history. More are coming - Will you be there? Enlist! Make us as proud 
of you as we are of them!

When Words Collide is a 100% volunteer run festival. Our organizers work throughout the year coordinating venues, guests, speakers, marketing and more, so that we all have a terrific annual festival celebrating the written word.

We also need volunteers during the festival to make the experience even more enjoyable.

Join our team of festival volunteers and receive:

  • a full 3-day pass to the festival
  • access to our hospitality suite
  • 2 lunch tickets that can be used at the hotel snack bar (sandwich or salad + drink)
  • One $15 Merchant coupon (good as cash in the Merchants Corner)
  • One Festival T-shirt, book bag, or a 2nd $15 Merchant coupon

Volunteers may join any one of our volunteer teams and assist that team's manager.

Online Volunteer

We need a variety of people to help us run the festival online. In particular, anybody who is willing to host a Zoom session. All you need is a computer with a camera and microphone. We will help you with the details.

We ask that volunteers work with their team for a minimum total of eight hours during the festival.

Please contact us if you would like to be one of this year's festival volunteers so that we can include you in our schedule and answer any questions you may have.

If you are adventurous and would like to help organize next year’s festival, we’d love to hear from you as well.
