Call for Volunteers

Edmonton Poetry Festival 2015

We know #YEG likes to support the Arts. We see it every year at all the gorgeous festivals Edmonton has to offer. We see it all year round at one-off events and casinos. We see it time and again when we put out a call to our community for volunteers. The people in this city are doers. You make things happen. We are asking you to help us make things happen again. The Edmonton Poetry Festival is set to launch on April 19th for 8 full days of Poetry that Moves You!

That’s over 32 events and we need your help! Can you give of your time to PoFest? We need help with event set up and take down, selling tickets, selling books, running our membership and information tables and driving poets to their events! We also need help to run Poetry Central on Churchill Square during festival week. Poetry Central includes our famous Short Order Poetry Booth. Maybe you want to write poems on the spot or play with chalk to write poems on the concrete. Try a hand at creating a poem with our word blocks. Help us introduce poetry to everyone in Churchill Square!

We’ve said it before. You know it. We know it. None of our plans happen without you. We’ll do our best to make your time with us as fun as possible. Perks include a swag bag, a special thank you gift from the festival and of course our Saturday night volunteer party.

And thank you. A thousand times over – thank you!
