We Heart Volunteers


 We Need YOU!

 The one thing that sets the Surrey International Writers' Conference apart from all the pale imitations out there is the remarkable pool of volunteers we have. Our volunteers drive this conference -- they are our life-blood. They are a part of every detail of this conference and we could not do it without them.

Being a volunteer is a great way to get a taste of the conference, if you've never been -- a chance to rub elbows with your favourite writers and with editors, agents and publishers from across the industry.

Our wonderful Volunteer Coordinator, Camille Netherton, is right now putting together her final lists. If you are interested in lending a hand this year -- helping to drive presenters to and from the airport, introducing speakers, manning our front desk -- then send Camille an email and she'll put you in our volunteer loop. You can reach Camille at c.netherton@siwc.ca or you can send me an email here and I will connect you.

 Join us! You'll be glad you did.
