The Mass Poetry Festival would not be possible without our dedicated, phenomenal volunteers. If you’d like to join the team, please fill out this form as you are able. As a volunteer, you’ll get a free all-access pass to the Festival and a limited edition t-shirt. We’ll make sure you have plenty of time to attend events!

We want to learn about your interests and how you’d like to get involved. We’ll reach out in the coming months to confirm your spot and provide more details. Thank you for your support!

Are you a Salem local? Are you interested in leading a small group of volunteers? We’re also looking for team captains.
