Contribute and Write for Skiddle

Calling all writers - Contributors wanted!

At Skiddle we rely on a hungry team of writers and contributors feeding us the information that makes us one of the UK's most read and respected music websites. We're always looking to recruit regular writers to join and work alongside our busy editorial team; do you think you've got what it takes to contribute to our rapidly growing and dynamic business?

We have a number of voluntary and paid writing positions available for writers of every discipline. For this role, you don't necessarily need any previous experience. All you will need is a thirst for writing about and experiencing music and events, and an enthusiasm to embroil yourself in this hugely exciting field. If you think you can translate your passion for music and events into stories then we want to hear from you.

In return you can expect to gain free entry into some of the biggest and best events in the UK and beyond, as well as gain access to performers, musicians and artists at the very pinnacle of their respective scenes. We'll also help you hone your writing skills and develop your style, giving helpful suggestions along the way in areas you can improve, and provide positive feedback on what we like about your work. This is your chance to get your name on our site, develop a working relationship with our editorial team and get your writing out there into the public's consciousness.

Contributors wanted include are in the key three focuses of our business - live music, festivals and clubs and dance music - and they will be writing event reviews, interview artists and our DJ love articles (see a recent one on Laurent Garnier), but we're completely open to your suggestions and pitches. Passionate about a local or a regional scene and want to tell everyone about it? Then get in touch. If your interests lie in any of these fields we'd love to talk to you about hopefully getting you involved with the Skiddle family. Just fire over an email and run by us the article (or articles) you're wanting to write, and we'll take it from there.

If your aim is to eventually write for a music publication, or to get started in music journalism, this could be the perfect inroad for you. We'll help you build your portfolio and enjoy a significant amount of media presence as an added bonus. Music publications looking for journalists will recognise the work you do for us, and who knows what that could lead to? This is your chance to get creative, write about the stuff you love, and reach a huge audience with your work.

So if you're an aspiring writer looking for somewhere to get your work aired, or a budding music journalist looking to tell the world about what you love - contributing to Skiddle could be your ideal way of getting started.
