This May we'll be travelling back down to Brighton as the Youth Media Partner to cover the Fringe! The comedy, theatre shows, dance, street acts and mime - you name it, we'll be covering it.
Check out the full range of shows at: brightonfringe.org
With such a big event, we're looking for more writers on the streets throughout the month. If you live in the Brighton or Hove area, or know that you'll be in Brighton between 4 May and 3 June 2018, we'd love to hear from you.
Who are we looking for?
You must be passionate about performance. You must have a critical mind, and be excited about discovering and analysing new and experimental shows.
We are looking for young writers who can submit work to a tight schedule (publishing reviews the day of, or one day after each show) and who are great time-keepers, making sure that you arrive on time to shows.
You must be aged 16-30 (please note, if you're under 18 you won't have access to 18+ shows).
What will you get?
You will receive a complimentary press ticket to each show that you choose to attend. Once we have confirmed our group of Brighton Fringe Reporters you can request your show choices on a first come, first served basis.
You will also have a 'Brighton Fringe Voice Reviewer' flag added to your account, and your reviews will be posted out on our social media channels, with your Twitter handle if you have an account.
Your work will receive a professional edit by one of Voice's editors, which will be a fantastic learning experience for any keen young writers or journalists.
If you want to meet the team before, or just brush up on your reviewing skills, we will be holding a free review writing workshop in Brighton!
When: 24 April 2018 at 18:30 - 20:30
Where: Board Room M2, University of Brighton, 58-67 Grand Parade, Brighton, BN2 0JY
Tickets: Free! Book your place now.
How to apply
To apply, send a sample review (that has been written by yourself) of any live show to [email protected]. Please include your full name, age and location.
Reviews should be kept to around 400 words. If you'd like to find writing inspiration you can check out our reviews here. voicemag.uk/reviews
I want more!
If Brighton isn’t enough for you, and you want to write for Voice more regularly, then we also invite you to become a Voice Contributor. Just like when reviewing for Brighton Fringe, you will receive access to our Editors Tom and Nici, who will help edit your work to help improve your work, as well as opportunities to review other events and festivals like Edinburgh Fringe!
