Whether you want to write, photograph, film, interview or even review; there is a way for you to get involved at Epigram!
The easiest way to get started is to join a writers’ group to learn more. On writers groups, Editors will post commissions which you can have a go at writing. These can be found on Facebook with links below. Click the section(s) you’re interested in. See separate instructions below for our News team!
News: Owing to the time sensitive nature of news the section is run slightly different. Please email for help getting involved: firstname.lastname@example.org
For any other questions or for information not covered here please email any of the following:email@example.com
Do I need to do English or Humanities to write for you?No. We have had Chemistry, Medicine, and Engineering students among many others who have written us. Your academic background is irrelevant!
Is it a lot of work?You can write as much or as little as you like. Unless you are part of our Editorial or Senior teams, there is no commitment whatsoever!
Do you want writers only?Not at all! We’re always on the lookout for photographers, videographers, illustrators, cartoonists and more.
I’ve never done any journalism and I don’t have much writing experience. Can I still get involved?No specific experience is required and any advice or help regarding writing an article can be sought from our section editors (admins of the Facebook page), who are happy to help. You can find out who our section editors are via the Meet the Team page:
Can I pitch articles to you, or do you decide what gets written?It’s a two way process. Our editors will put out commissions via the Facebook groups, but they are always looking for interesting and unique ideas - or even suggestions! Speak to the section you want to write for: they’ll help work through, develop and publish your idea.
I want to do more than just write for you, how can I get involved?
Our Editorial and Senior teams are chosen towards the end of each academic year, so your best chance is to apply then! Sporadic openings for specific positions do open up occasionally, but getting involved through writing for us is a great place to start.
