Volunteer Opportunities

NOTE: We will not be accepting any more LitFest volunteers after Sunday, 8th Jan 2023

NOTE: We are currently looking for Social Media volunteers to support our communications team until middle of February 2023. 

The Emirates Literature Foundation is home to many initiatives aimed at encouraging and celebrating a love of reading and writing in the Middle East — including the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, Voices of Future Generations of Arabia, School Librarian of the Year Award, and other student competitions.

With so many events taking place throughout the year, we’re always looking for volunteers to help us keep everything running smoothly.
