Retakes for students: only when improvement can be made to photography, e.g. eyeglass glare, poor posture, head tilt, eyes closed.                              D. Bach (16)

6.      VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITYThe Vancouver Writers Fest is recruiting volunteers for its annual celebration of writers and the written and spoken word, October 15-21 on Granville Island.  If anyone is interested in volunteering, visit our website and click on the “volunteer jobs” link.  This will lead you to the next two pages, which have specifics on volunteer jobs, policies/benefits and the link to online registration.  Once you complete and submit the registration through My Volunteer Page, we’ll review your registration and be in touch with you.  As Friday is a Pro-D Day, students should indicate on their Availability page that they have Friday Oct 19th available.

Where we need volunteers the most is the Sunday set-up and strike crews for Food & Beverage.  Shift times are:  *8-11 am; *12:15-3:15 pm; *5-8 pm.

Important:  On the Qualifications page of your volunteer profile, please answer YES to the “Can you commit to 12 hours minimum Festival Week” even though only 6 hours are required.  If anyone can volunteer for more hours, we'd be really grateful, especially if they are available Saturday for a 1-4pm Event and Food Prep shift and any time on Friday for possible assignment to Box Office, Cushion Dispenser or Books shifts. Thank you so much!  We hope to hear from you soon!             N. Sandhu (11)​
