Volunteer: Dublin Book Festival 2013

by admin on October 3, 2013

The Dublin Book Festival is one of Ireland’s most successful and vibrant book festivals. This annual public Festival showcases, supports and develops Irish Publishing by programming, publicising and selling Irish published books, their authors, editors and contributors, all in an entertaining, festive, friendly and accessible environment that reflects the creativity and personality of Irish Publishing and its authors.

This Festival, which is shared by publishers, contributors and audiences alike, is one of celebration – celebration of a city (and country) that produces some of the best literature in the world and of the teams behind them that make it all happen.

With that said, this year’s Dublin Book Festival is fast approaching and we are looking for dedicated volunteers to make this the best festival yet! Volunteering is a great way to experience the festival and a unique opportunity to be part of a diverse, exciting and inspiring event. To see what’s on offer, check out the DBF 2013 Programme.

If you are interested in joining our enthusiastic volunteer team please download the DBF 2013 VOLUNTEER FORM and send it to Deadline for applications November 2, 2013.

We look forward to welcoming you to the DBF Team!


This year, for the week running up to and the days during the Dublin Book Festival, we are looking for confident and enthusiastic drama students, groups and individuals to take part in a series of live pop-up performances on LUAS and DART in Dublin city centre locations. This would involve surprise readings of both poetry and prose to help spread word of the Festival.

This is an exciting opportunity for eager young actors and adults alike to exercise their imagination in front of a wide and varied audience, to remind people of the celebration, the community, and the collective awesomeness of Dublin Book Festival.

Participation in the Festival is open to those who are over the age of 18 years only. Please note that this is an unpaid voluntary role. If interested, please reply to where we would be happy to pass on more information.
