Here at Voice we work with a diverse range of writers, film-makers and photographers who have a passion for art and culture. If you’re interested in making the jump from amateur to professional with confidence, evidence and contacts then our Contributor programme could be for you.
Voice contributors are skillful young people who get their work professionally edited by our team before it gets published and featured on our site. We are currently looking for people to join the programme where, in exchange for your time and talent, we will provide you with all the tools you need to take that first step.
Whilst working with us, you’ll have access to some great perks. These may include opportunities to interview artists and professionals, press tickets and training events, as well as a full membership to Benefits Cloud.
Whether you want to develop your understanding and talent in creating great news packages; engaging long form journalism; or are interested in being part of our accredited team of reviewers - we have the tools to help.
