Call for contributors

Written by

 Application graphic

Writers, photographers, video journalists – lend us your talents! E&M is accepting applications for new contributors to join our transnational magazine.

Here at E&M, we aim to make Europe personal – and we need your help in doing so. We are currently looking for passionate and inventive new contributors to help take Europe's first online lifestyle magazine created by young Europeans for young Europeans to even bigger and better things. As part of the contributor community, you will be published on a Charlemagne Award­-winning online platform with a wide international readership and more than 4,000 Facebook likes.

You will have the freedom to pursue your own journalistic interests, supported by our team of dedicated volunteer editors. We will offer you the opportunity to collaborate with writers from every corner of Europe and keep you up to date on competitions, workshops and other transnational journalistic events. All we ask for in return is a commitment to writing at least two high­ quality transnational articles (or other contributions e.g. films, photo stories etc.) every year.

Journalistic experience is an advantage, but it is not essential. If you are under 35 years of age and are keen to make a contribution towards an international dialogue about Europe, we want you to apply. We welcome applications from a wildly diverse range of people – be they writers, photographers, video journalists, illustrators or cartoonists. If you join us you will be involved in at least one of the following tasks:

  • Researching and writing articles for E&M, including communication with section editors
  • Blogging from events around Europe
  • Taking photos of people, events and landscapes to illustrate our stories or publish as stand-alone photojournalism
  • Drawing cartoons
  • Filming your travels
  • Proofreading E&M articles

  • Reliable and responsible: E&M is an entirely volunteer-driven project, so we need people who share our enthusiam and know how to stick to deadlines

Editorial

If the Editorial team had an actual office it would have to stretch from the corner of Britain to the edges of Spain, Sweden, Germany and beyond. (With frequent trips to America too) .  The term 'from the editorial office' then, is very much a figure of speech.
