The Bubble is always looking for writers for all sections; a list of contact details under ‘About us’ will direct you to the correct editor if you’re looking to publish your work. We cover everything from commenting on local, national and global affairs, to art, poetry and satire. No experience is necessary, and you can contribute as much or as little as you like.
We also offer the opportunity to have a regular column. This can cover any topic and can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly or whatever pattern suits you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a proposal for a column or any questions.
A couple of times a year The Bubble recruits new members to fill editorial and media vacancies. This typically occurs around the start of the new academic year. They will be displayed here and we will publicise them on our social media accounts. Previous editors have landed work experience and internships at the BBC, The Guardian, Sky News and Penguin Random House. Our current editorial vacancies are:

Freelance Photography Positions
We also admit photographers, social media managers and amateur film-makers on a rolling basis.
What the job entails
As a Bubble photographer you will be a member of our Photography Team which receives photo requests to supply for articles. For example, and editor from our Politics section may approach the team with the theme of ‘election night’ or simply ‘politics’ and the Team Leader will then seek out which photographer can help with this project. This includes both being dispatched to take some photos according to a theme for a certain deadline (this will be decided by timetabling and availability, and all editors are aware that a time-frame of a few days warning minimum must be given) and also uploading any previous work you would like to showcase to our Bubble Photography archive for authors to browse.
This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your work, and The Bubble is very serious about proper accreditation – your work will be credited, and if you spot an author who has failed to do so, the General Editor will sort this out personally. A dedicated website where you can browse our previous photographers’ work and usage in article can be found here.
How to apply
If you’re interested in the platform The Bubble can offer you for this, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or if we’re currently advertising open positions for photography, follow the instructions on how to apply on our social media or the dedicated website linked above.
