Get Involved

EXHIBIT

By participating in Word Vancouver, you’ll connect with the people who matter most to you: those who love to read, buy books and magazines, and care about literacy in Canada.

Exhibitors will be located on Library Square, Homer Street, and inside the library. Homer Street will be closed to all traffic. As an exhibitor, you get a free listing with a 15-word blurb in the official Program Guide. For additional exposure you may purchase advertising space in the Program Guide (see below under “Advertise” for more details).

Deadline for registration is June 20, 2017. Read all the registration details in our Exhibitor Registration Package (fillable PDF).

VOLUNTEER

This festival is only made possible by the dedication of our volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to be involved on a deeper level and to meet like-minded lovers of literature. Volunteers contribute in many different capacities, including Set-Up, Traffic Control/Greeter, and Venue Captain.

To volunteer fill out this application (fillable PDF) and email it to the Volunteer Coordinator.

PROGRAMMING

If you’d like to read, perform, or have a great idea for our festival programming, be sure to let us know. We’re always looking for fresh ideas and talent, and we look forward to making each year’s festival the biggest and best ever.

Programming decisions for the festival are typically made in late spring (May-June). Due to the high volume of inquiries received, only those selected will be contacted. Please email us information (PDF or press release preferred) about your proposed program event.

ADVERTISE

Place an advertisement in the official program. You’ll capitalize on this publication’s high pick-up rate and great exposure in public libraries, bookstores, and cafés. We distribute 12,000 copies of our 64-page program throughout the Lower Mainland. Just fill out and send in the Ad Space Form to take advantage of this opportunity!
