Work Study & Volunteers

Volunteers work closely with Loft staff, author/personalities, and the literary community at Loft events, and elsewhere. The Loft only seeks volunteers interested in helping with literary events and occasional administrative projects.

Some long-term volunteers are eligible for work-study credit. For each hour you work at the Loft, you earn an hour of class time.
