Volunteering for Autumn Season

Volunteering for Autumn Season
Tuesday, August 31,

Dear All, hope everyone is well and that you've all had a great summer. Already the back to school feeling has kicked in in the PEN office and I'm now after volunteers for the Autumn schedule. Usual system - first come first served. I'll try and accommodate your preferences wherever I can. Volunteering takes the form of wine pouring, a bit of front of house work and I need one person for each event to write a report for the website. (Examples of previous reports can be found here: http://www.englishpen.org/events/reportsonrecentevents/
All the events are available to view at www.englishpen.org/events and I will need the following:
2-3 people for Granta: Crossing the Line
2-3 people for Everyone's a Critic?
2 people for Daniel Pennac
2-3 people for Ismail Kadare
2-3 people for China Mieville
2 people for PEN Pinter
2-3 people for Alberto Manguel
2-3 people for AGM and Christmas party
I'll also need around 10 people for the PEN Quiz on Monday 22nd November but we'll tackle that one a bit nearer the time.
In September, FLOW the Free Word Festival will also be happening and if you are interested in volunteering for any of the events in the festival programme: www.freewordonline/flow then please contact Rachel Buchanan on rachel@freewordonline.com. Rachel is also in need of people to invigilate an art exhibition which will be running throughout the festival period. Again, do please email her for more details.
I'll look forward to seeing some of you in the next few weeks!
