Meet our volunteers

We’re so grateful for our volunteers and the work they do over the festival weekend. We could not run the festival without their support and involvement.

Here’s what some of them have said about volunteering:

“With 13 years working as a Willy Lit Fest volunteer, I can recommend the experience for anyone who cares about books, lively discussion and doing something worthwhile”.
