Write for Entertainment Focus
EF is an established and respected source of entertainment news, reviews, features and interviews.
We’re always looking for talented and passionate contributors to get involved across the site and generate fantastic content that our readers will love.
What do we need?
As you’ll know EF covers a wide variety of areas and we’re on the lookout for writers to help in every section of the site. We’re happy to consider interest from any writer but we’re particularly looking for help in the following sections:
Books – news, reviews, features and interviews
Film – news and features
Games – news, reviews, features and interviews
Music – news, reviewers (albums/singles/live)
Technology – news, features and reviews
Theatre – news, features and reviewers
TV – weekly recaps for TV shows, British TV news writers, soap writers
Anyone interested in writing for us must be committed and passionate. Ideally we want people who will generate regular content for the site.
How much will you get paid?
Honestly, the answer isn’t very much. There is a small pot of money that is divided between writers based on the amount of page impressions they generate in a month. This varies wildly and depends on the ad revenue that comes in from the site. Obviously the more page impressions generated, the more advertising revenue comes in so we can pay out more.
If money is your main motivation then you’d be wasting your time applying to write with us.
What we can offer is experience and the opportunity to get your work noticed. Working with us may give you chance to interview big name talent, attend press screenings and events, and get a fair amount of free stuff for you to review and (for the most part) keep.
What experience do you need?
You need to be able to write to a high standard and talk knowledgeably about whatever it is you’re writing content about. You also need to be committed and passionate, and able and willing to do the things you agree to. If we take you on and you miss deadlines or don’t turn in the content you’ve agreed, you will lose your place on the team.
How do you apply?
Send us an email. Please include links to any samples of your work online and detail which section you’d be interested in writing for.
