Happy 2018! We always look forward to January 1 as it means we can start talking about the festival as happening THIS year as opposed to NEXT year. This is, in some ways, mildly terrifying as there is SO MUCH TO DO, but at the same time it's also very exciting. All those wonderful writers and poets... it's getting closer!
This year, January 1 also marks the start of our volunteer sign-up. We absolutely love our volunteers - you will not find a more brilliant, charming, and devoted bunch of book-lovers anywhere. It takes many, many willing hands to make Unbound run smoothly, and we simply would not be able to put the festival on without their help. So, if you have volunteered in the past: THANK YOU. And if you're thinking about it for this April: PLEASE DO. It's great fun, and you'll be rewarded with an exclusive, never-to-be-sold-anywhere T-shirt, an invitation to the awesome volunteer/author party at Orr Street Studios on Saturday night - and, of course, our eternal thanks. Oh, and doughnuts.
If you would like to join our happy ship, please follow this link and fill out the questionnaire. We're trying out a slightly different process this year, which means that even if you have volunteered for us before, you will need to re-register. And if you know of other people who might enjoy the experience, please encourage them to sign up, too.
If you have any questions, email our Empress of Volunteers, Susan, at: email@example.com.
Thanks a million! We can't wait to see you in April!!
