WhatCulture is currently run by a select group of talented and trusted contributors. We are always on the look out for new writers and would welcome you to submit an application. New contributor positions on WhatCulture are on a voluntary basis, but what we do offer is the opportunity to gain lots of valuable experience (and freebies!).
You can learn more about all of the wonderful reasons why you should become a contributor here.
Here are five of the top reasons to become a WhatCulture writer:
1) Exposure. WhatCulture has a global audience who view 50 million pages every single month. Articles regularly reach over 4 million unique readers and have been featured in national newspapers (The Guardian, NY Times, The Independent) and on television. WhatCulture is now one of the UK’s top 100 most visited websites (http://quantcast.com/whatculture.com).
2) No Experience? No Problem. Stop walking into job interviews with a below par CV that isn’t going to get you hired. Writing for WhatCulture offers you the chance to gain valuable experience that will put other people’s CVs to shame and land you a better job.
3) Opportunity. Whether you are an aspiring journalist, or simply passionate about a particular subject, we have great opportunities for everyone. In the past two years we have created ten paid roles at WhatCulture, while we have also seen numerous writers go on to gain jobs at national publications off the back of their work on the site.
4) Personal Development. We have experienced editorial team who will help you hone your skills and become a better writer. We will give you lots of unique opportunities and a skill set which will really make your CV stand out.
5) Real World Experience. Though we don’t throw everyone in at the deep end, those who prove their ability will be offered the chance to conduct interviews with the stars and attend exclusive press events. For those based in North East of England, there are also work experience opportunities with us direct in our Newcastle city-centre office.
