Get Involved

Positions for volunteers for the Bellingen Readers & Writers’ Festival 2017 are almost complete, but if you want to contact Roby at to express interest, it would still be appreciated.

Volunteers are needed Friday night, Saturday, Saturday night Poetry Slam and for Sunday – for ushering, ticket sales, transporting writers etc. Volunteers are required to work 6-8 hours, and in return will receive a weekend pass to the festival.

Please email Roby at to state availability and duties you can undertake.

The Bellingen Readers & Writers’ Festival committee is voluntary – there’s a lot of work needed to put this festival on, and it’s great to meet like-minded people and get experience in a festival that has been called the best new writers’ festival in Australia.

We’re always open to new ideas – if you have experience in business planning and finances, we’d especially like to hear from you.
Thanks from the Committee.
