Wakey Litfest are looking for your writing for the festival zine from young people aged 16 – 25! These are paid opportunities for biography-style articles about people or inventions related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in Wakefield and the surrounding area.
To submit you must either be over 18 years old, or over 16 and have parental permission.
How the zine works:
The zine will focus on the theme of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in Wakefield and the surrounding area. It will include 12 articles which highlight the achievements of local figures or inventions who contributed to Yorkshire industry. For example, is there a historic figure you know of who was a trailblazer in their field? Or perhaps you’ve found out about an invention from Wakefield that kept workers safe. Anything like that – we want it! And feel free to be creative in your links to STREAM.
The articles will require some background research to form the basis of your article. If this is something you want support in, send us a message!
There are 12 paid opportunities for article writing available that will be paid £50 for its inclusion. Submission should fit somewhere within the genres of non-fiction, biography or journalism writing and be around 800 words.
So, if this sounds up your street, please submit your work to email@example.com! Happy writing! We can’t wait to see what you make.
