Volunteers Needed for Write On Vancouver 2017

Volunteers needed!

Write On Vancouver is the Vancouver Public Library’s first writing and publishing festival, and Editors BC will be part of this one-day celebration of all things bookish. This is a great opportunity to meet fellow editors and potential clients, have some fun, and check out the festival.

We are looking for volunteers to staff the Editors BC booth, in teams of two, for one- or two-hour shifts between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Saturday, May 13. The event will be held at the Vancouver Public Library’s Central Branch.

The main responsibilities are distributing printed information about Editors Canada and Editors BC and answering questions from festival attendees. No experience is necessary! New members are encouraged to participate and will be paired with more experienced editors wherever possible. We will try to have two people staffing the booth at all times.

Signing up has never been easier. Here’s how it works:

  1. Click the link to sign up:
  2. Sign in with Facebook or your email address (no need to create an account or set a password).
  3. Review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you prefer.
  4. Provide your name and phone number (for use on the event-day contact list only).
  5. Save!

If that sounds like fun to you, please follow the link above to volunteer an hour or two of your time. You will receive a confirmation email immediately after you sign up. You will also get a reminder email two days before the event.

If you have any questions, please email Wendy Barron at

Editors BC relies on its members to help promote our craft and raise the profile of our profession. Your participation and commitment are sincerely appreciated.

Thank you so much!
