BOOTH STAFF Volunteers:  

We'll be set up in the Youth Village on Brown's Island.  We're looking for 2 volunteers per shift, though you're welcome to sign up for multiple shifts, if you like! Mini-workshops will also be offered, staffed by experienced Richmond Young Writers and RYW Teachers.

This year, we're making our signature words of love bookmarks alongside hourly creative writing workshops for youth.  You can volunteer to lead a workshop or to staff the tables, helping to hang bookmarks and share information about Richmond Young Writers.  

Volunteers will wear a RYW lapel pin and a super cool apron (provided), and are encouraged to share their experiences and answer questions about our classes and workshops with the folks visiting our booth.  

MINI WORKSHOP LEADERS:  RICHMOND YOUNG WRITERS and RYW Teachers only *  We'll contact you prior to the event to walk through what activities we'll be offering each hour.  You'll be familiar with how it all works, but we want you to feel super comfortable!  Oh, and you can definitely sign up for BOTH a volunteer booth staff shift AND a Mini workshop lead spot!
