Gala Volunteers Needed!

Program Designer: Design the program with the information provided to them by the Awards Director and the Gala Coordinator.

Book Table/ Sticker Seller (2): Receive books on consignment (a list will be provided), sell books and stickers after the awards ceremony is over, give a tally at the end of the evening for products sold and money owed to authors. If possible, should arrive at the hall by 4:30.

Door Greeters (2): Greet people at the door and check people’s names off the list as they arrive. If possible, should arrive at 5:00.

Floaters (2): These people will be available during the Award Ceremony to keep things running smoothly. This will entail: getting people to the photographer, guiding people to and from the stage, helping the photographer with any of their needs.

Candid shot Photographer: Take some candid shots of the attendees during the gala evening.

Photographer helper: Help the awards photographer (Stephen Woo) take down names and emails during the awards.

Male Reader: Do you channel Morgan Freeman or perhaps Sean Connery and love to read out loud? We are looking for a male reader who will read portions of the winning submissions during the Awards Gala. They must be able to arrive at the venue at 4:00 for sound check and quick run through.

Please email Carol Ford: volunteers@thewordguild.com to sign up.
