Become a Literary Docent at Larksong Writers Place!

Reasons to become a Larksong Docent:

  • To support the literary arts in Lincoln
  • To get involved in the writing community
  • To meet other writers
  • It looks good on your resume



  • Must be a member of Larksong Writers Place at Working Writer Level or above
  • Must commit to a minimum of one hour a month of volunteer time
  • If volunteering for Open Write times must commit to a specific scheduled time each month
  • Must commit to 1 hour orientation training prior to beginning volunteer work. 


Larksong Literary Docents are dedicated volunteers who are passionate about writing and wish to serve the writing community. They facilitate Larksong Writers Place events by welcoming writers and guests to various events, including Open Write Times, Third Thursday: Voices at Larksong, and Visiting Writers Series. They are responsible for checking member cards at Member Only events, greeting guests, informing people about the facility and Larksong activities, assisting with various light duties associated with each event.

Want to be a part of the community but the Literary Docent gig feels like too much human interaction all at once? We get it. We’re introverts too. Larksong events also entail set ups and clean ups before and after each event. Please let us know if you’d like to be a member of the Event Support team.

Responsibilities include:

  • Assisting in setting up (moving chairs & tables, setting out food and drink tables). This generally takes place several hours before the event.
  • Assisting with tear down (putting everything back the way it was after the event). This takes place immediately after the event.
