To our wonderful Volunteers

The Festival is about Readers Writing and Writers Reading in an inspirational environment, showcasing the talent of local and regional writers.

This is a community led initiative by Tropical Writers Inc. and is dependent on small grants and donations by the business community. It is also through the passion and commitment of a volunteer committee that ensures this biennial event continues. It is the support of people willing to give a few hours of their time to volunteer and assist that contributes to the Festival being well run, safe and enjoyable for all attending.

Your interest in volunteering and supporting the Cairns Tropical Writers Festival is much appreciated and we thank you for offering your time. In return for your time the entry fee will be waived for you. You will also receive a reference if you so require and a certificate of appreciation.
