Become A Volunteer

Hello, Festival Friends!  We hope to see you this year for our 38th annual event March 20 - 24, 2024.

We could not produce this event without our dedicated volunteers and site managers. We will need:

  • attendee check-in at the doors of events
  • event site managers to make sure our panels and writer's craft sessions run smoothly
  • room monitors to assist site managers and guests
  • supply runners to move signs and supplies to our various venues
  • photographers and videographers
  • party assistants
  • book fair assistants
  • HQ assistants to sell merch and tickets and check-in speakers and guests
  • supply drivers for load-in/load-out

Volunteer benefits include a FULL WEEKEND LitPass and other event perks. Shifts are flexible, as are locations.

If you have any questions about volunteering, email us at

Being a festival volunteer is a great opportunity to meet wonderful people while attending New Orleans’ most famous literary festival.
