Joyzine is always on the lookout for enthusiastic, creative and talented people to join our team.
If you’re a writer, photographer, videographer or artist of any (or indeed no) level of experience and would like to share your love of music and the arts on an established webzine, we’d like to hear from you.
Joyzine is proud of its independent status and carries no advertising, indeed generating no income at all. The site and all of the content is created by a team of passionate fans. As such we are not able to offer payment for work used on the site.
You will however have the opportunity to get into the gigs, festivals and other events that you cover for free (usually with an extra ticket for a friend), be sent new music before its release and have the chance to meet and work with some of your favourite artists and bands, as well as being able to share the music and arts that you care about with a worldwide audience.
All work on Joyzine is credited and a link to your blog or website can be included alongside it if you wish. We do not claim copyright of your work and you are free to publish any articles, photographs or artwork elsewhere. We believe in allowing our contributors the freedom to express themselves in the manner which they feel best suits the subject matter and do not apply a strict ‘house style’ or word count.
Previous contributors to Joyzine have gone on to have work featured in national publications such as The Guardian, NME and Time Out or to work in other areas of the music industry including at record labels and PR agencies. From time to time we are sent details of employment opportunities to share with our team and we are always happy to provide references when requested.
If you would be interested in joining the Joyzine team, please contact our editor, Paul Maps, with some examples of your work: firstname.lastname@example.org
I would love to help, I love writing, I love music, I’ve never put the two together so, who knows what may come out.
Great, thanks Jodie – dop us an email: email@example.com
Interested. I’m a writer, musician and photographer, based in Gloucestershire, 20 miles north of Bristol. Until recently, I was working as a community radio DJ, which involved going to live gigs/festivals and interviewing emerging, local bands and more acclaimed names, such as The Levellers. I also work for a publishing company, so there is a natural interest in literature and local writers.
Thanks Kev, we’d love to hear from you – send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you started.
