Write For Us – Get Some Work Experience

write for us

Do you dream of being a writer or a journalist? If so, read on, get in touch and write for us.

Here at Moving On we like to give young people the opportunity to gain a bit of experience.

Over the years we’ve had many young writers work with us to produce the magazine, some returning year after year and eventually taking on the role of guest editor.

You don’t have to be a budding writer or journalist, enthusiasm and a good work ethic is enough for us!

Doing work experience is a great way of evidencing skills for your CV, especially when you don’t have any paid work experience.

The skills that you can develop by writing for us include skills in research, writing and proofreading, time-keeping (a deadline really is a deadline when you’re writing for a print magazine) and attention to detail.

If you would like to join our team of young writers, get in touch with Lynette via email at ldaly@cascaid.co.uk. There are six opportunities a year to write for one of our print magazines and plenty more if you want to write for our website.

Here’s what some of our young writers had to say about writing for the magazine and completing work experience in the offices.

“Writing for Moving On provided me with experience and skills in the field of Journalism. I was able to independently research and structure my own article as well as go out and about as a roving reporter. I loved the opportunity!” – Mel Snow, Alcester Grammar Sixth Form.

“I enjoyed my experience of writing for ‘Moving On’ so much and feel like it’s given me an insight into the industry of journalism” – Conor Elliot, Sir William Robertson Academy.

“I tackled a number of different tasks at Moving On, including researching and writing articles, editing databases and assisting other writers with their work. It was a fascinating insight into the production and editing process of a magazine.” – Louis Ashworth, University of Cambridge.

“I loved writing for Moving On magazine as it gave me a taste of what it was like to be a journalist and convinced me that this is the career path I would like to follow.” -Leyan Yucel, Cox Green School, Berkshire.
