Volunteer

The National Poetry Slam runs with the aid of hundreds of volunteers, so we are accepting help from both locals and folks who can work from afar! We are actively seeking volunteers to help with the following tasks preceding the event itself, starting in fall of 2012:

  • venue connections
  • art and design
  • promotions and press releases
  • copy editing
  • street team (no experience required)

In addition, NPS will require close to two hundred volunteers at the event itself in August 2013. Experience is desirable, but not at all required for most of the following posts:

  • social media promotion (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
  • transportation (driving or local guidance)
  • vending merchandise
  • competition prep
  • venue management
  • sound and lighting
  • scorekeeping and timekeeping
  • flier distribution

Interested parties are invited to fill out the form on the right side of the page. You may also email our Volunteer Coordinator directly at volunteer@nps2013.poetryslam.com.
