Joyzine is always on the lookout for enthusiastic, creative and talented people to join our team.
If you’re a writer, photographer, videographer, podcaster or artist of any (or indeed no) level of experience and would like to share your love of music, literature, film and the arts on an established webzine, we’d like to hear from you.
Joyzine was founded in 2003 and we’re proud of our independent status. We carry no advertising, and do not generate any income. 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 major 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
