Volunteers are at the heart of all our activities, they come back event after event with the same enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment. And every year our fabulous group of volunteers grows. Come and experience our events from the inside. Bring your skills, love of words and be part of the largest festival of its kind in the South Island. There are many volunteer opportunities available throughout the year and of course, during the festival.



“What a beautiful and enriching weekend it was at @WORDChCh.I feel so full and so proud of the incredible talent in this country. A heap of gratitude to @rachaelking70 and the whole team for bringing it to life. You deserve gold crowns and three weeks of uninterrupted sleep.”
