Enlist in the #indieArmy

What our volunteers think

“I really enjoyed helping lots of people find their next favourite book. I was excited to see how much the event has grown from its humble beginnings. I met readers from all over the UK and some from different parts of the world. Which was pretty cool!”

This was a fun experience! I am looking forward to next year's festival. I got to speak to Kendare Blake who is one of my all-time favourite authors, which was amazing. 

I have made friends with authors and the Indie Army volunteers and keep coming back every year.

Working as an indie army volunteer has provided me with an amazing and unforgettable experience. I have learnt to lead, to work in a team and to overall have fun spending time with a variety of brilliant people. I’m thankful for the opportunity I have been given and I can’t wait to see the indie team and event flourish like I know it will and has been doing.

Thanks guys! Love you.
