Emirates Airline Festival of Literature Welcomes Applications from Volunteers

Dubai, 28 December, 2015: Do you love reading? Do you almost always feel like the book was better than the film? You should feel right at home at the eighth Emirates Airline Festival of Literature. Our 2016 edition is almost upon us and we are looking for avid supporters of literature to give us a hand. Or if books are not really your thing, now is your chance to change your mind! We offer a variety of volunteer positions and aim to match volunteers to their area of interest and expertise.

With more than 140 authors holding countless sessions, our community of volunteers are an essential cog in the Festival wheel. The Festival offers a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the world of events. Apply for a variety of roles in different areas including the author signing area, information desks, box office, room and area management, Fringe, social media, photography and so much more.

We also have several volunteer positions available from January till March at our Festival office, Dar Al Adaab, in Al Shindagha Historical Neighbourhood. Volunteer today at: http://emirateslitfest.com/about/recruitment/volunteer-applications/

There is plenty of fun to be had alongside the volunteering role – you can enjoy attending sessions between shifts and spotting your favourite authors.

Can’t volunteer? Don’t worry; there are other ways to support the Festival. Sign up to the Festival Friends membership programme today and gain access to exclusive benefits, early-bird Festival tickets and discounted prices, reserved seating and access to the Festival Friends lounge.
