Apply to be a Festival of Faith and Writing Volunteer

In just over a year (April 19-21, 2012), Calvin College will hold its biennial Festival of Faith and Writing ( This event hosts more than seventy speakers and 2,000 attendees on Calvin's campus. Past Festival's have welcomed such luminaries as Anne Lamott, Salman Rushdie, Michael Chabon, Maya Angelou, Elie Wiesel, John Updike, Katherine Paterson, and Madeline LEngle, among many, many others.

In order to put this event on, we need a great deal of assistance from dedicated student volunteers willing to serve on the Festival's Student Committee. In return for this help, volunteers are given free admission to the Festival, and will have the opportunity to meet and interact with some of the writers involved in this event.

As a student interested in writing, you are invited to apply for the Student Committee for Festival 2012! Please pick up an application from the Festival office (CFAC 232). Students off-campus this semester may write to for more information.

Applications are due Friday, March 18, 2011. Applicants will be contacted after spring break for an interview. Questions can be directed to Shannon Jammal-Hollemans in the Festival office at
