We will need ticket takers at the doors of events; room monitors to assist guests and speakers; runners to move signs and supplies to various venues; photographers, and videographers; party assistants; book fair assistants; and HQ assistants to sell merch and tickets, and to check-in speakers and guests.
We’ll need assistance at both TWFest and at our LGBTQ+ Literary Festival, Saints and Sinners (SASFest).
You’ll get a free Literary Discussion Pass for your reward. This admits you to all TWFest Literary Discussions and SASFest panels. Shifts are 4-5 hours each.
