Nature and Environment Writer

Do you love wildlife and the environment and have a passion for writing? Then this opportunity could be for you.

New Nature is a new youth e-magazine written, edited and produced entirely by young people aged 30 and under. We hope to offer a fresh perspective on topical issues in conservation, highlight the beauty to be seen year round in the British countryside and strengthen overall interest in nature and the environment. The magazine is produced monthly and can be downloaded free of charge from our website – www.newnature.co.uk. The magazine includes a variety of topics from articles about a particular species, to opinion pieces and celebrity interviews. Our first issue was published at the beginning of the year and with the interest growing we are looking for more writers to contribute content to our magazine and online blog.

This role is fairly flexible and you can contribute in any of the following ways:

  • Write an article about a particular subject (such as a specific species or conservation topic) for our magazine. Please note the magazine is based on UK seasonal wildlife so we do not currently accept overseas pieces unless they are linked to the UK.
  • Contribute a blog to be put on our website – www.newnature.co.uk/blog.

Writer specification:

  • A love of nature and the environment is a must
  • Good communication and writing skills.
  • An ability to meet submission deadlines.
  • As the magazine is a youth magazine writers should be aged 30 or under.

Please note the magazine is currently run by a team of nature lovers on a voluntary basis so we unfortunately cannot pay contributors. Articles submitted will also be edited before being published.
