Already applied and haven't heard back? Stay tuned! We're working on a volunteer schedule. If your availability has changed or if you have any questions, contact our Volunteer Coordinator Danielle at volunteer@guelphspokenword.com.

There are several jobs for volunteers from working door, helping with the slams through time/score keeping, hosting, active listening, and much more. The bulk of our volunteer positions take place during the festival, but we also have some important pre-festival tasks that can start right away!

Perks range from finals tickets to festival passes depending on your role and number of shifts. We're happy to sign off on hours for any volunteer requirements you're currently looking to complete.
