How to Review


Here at Voice, we're passionate about supporting young people's views. We want to offer a wide range of perspectives plus some lively discussion through writing, videos, photos, podcasts, and we’re the home for your reviews. 

You can write a review of any arts activity: film releases, books, art exhibitions, video games, music videos, song lyrics, poetry, spoken word performances, festivals...you name it! 

Reviews should be around 200-500 words, or if you prefer to vlog about your experience you should aim for a video of approximately 1-3 minutes. If you're keen to develop your reviewing and reporting, apply to join our network of Voice Contributors or join one of our Local Reviewer projects and you'll get our support - plus press tickets!


Reviewing guide

We've compiled a super short and simple reviewing guide that you can follow to get started. It explains how to use summaries, the key points to include in a review, and top tips for ensuring that your review is helpful to your readers and the artists you're reviewing.
