Volunteering is a great way to experience the heart of the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, contribute to the development of literature and to meet new friends.

Volunteers come from around Indonesia and the world, and work in every part of the event: from the Box office to writer liaison, at discussion venues and special events, with book launches and children’s workshops.

In return for working 4 x 4 hour shifts, volunteers receive a pass to all the main venue events, a dedicated hospitality area and other benefits–such as a free Festival t-shirt, lunch on work days and more. Please note we do not provide flights, accommodation or expenses.

Volunteer applications for the 2014 Festival will open in around July 2014.
