"I regularly volunteer at many festivals, but Sydney Writers' Festival is my favourite — primarily because of the lovely atmosphere, familiar faces, meeting with other bookworms and attending talks by fabulous authors. What's not to love?" — Vandana, two-time volunteer

"I found SWF to be a rewarding, fun and awesome experience last year and I can't wait to be part of it again." — Madeline, first-time volunteer
