The 1000 Islands Writers Festival depends on the valuable contribution of our community to make the festival weekend a success. We are a nonprofit organization operated entirely by a dedicated group of volunteers who love books, authors, people, and great stories.

Rain or shine, floods or flowers (2017 was quite an adventure) our team spirit and dedication keeps us on track.  Our guest authors and festival participants are treated to warm welcomes and cared for in every way. If you’d like to offer your hand as part of our volunteer team, you can look forward to laughter and unique experiences.
