Interested in volunteering?

Join a dynamic team today

Without the thoughtful assistance and commitment of our many volunteers, we would not be able to maintain the quality of courses and programs for which we are well known.

We value your commitment to making AWCS a great place for all writers.

Volunteer Auditor – One day, July or August 2019.

As part of our obligation to the Societies Act of Alberta, the AWCS is obligated to perform internal financial reviews annually. These should be done by two members in good standing.

You do not need to have a financial background, or be an accountant. We need someone with a keen eye for detail who can compare invoices to expenses and payments to ensure sound financial practices.

We have one auditor and are in need of one more person to spend the day going through invoices and bank statements. The Treasurer and Executive Director will also be onsite to assist with any questions.

If interested, please contact Robin at 

When Words Collide 2019 – August 9-11, 2019

Every year, AWCS has a table at When Words Collide. We need some volunteers to assist manning the table throughout the weekend. Hand out brochures and talk about the AWCS to your fellow writers. If you’re already attending the conference and have a couple of hours to spare, we would appreciate your assistance.

In addition, if you have books you would like to sell at the same time, we invite you to bring them along and use the opportunity to also promote yourself.

Please select the day that you would be available to assist and we will contact you to confirm times.


Holiday Party Organizing Committee – September – December 2019

If parties are your thing…
