We’re always looking to work with new people here at Bido Lito!. Our greatest asset is our immensely strong team of contributors: the talented writers, photographers, illustrators and designers who are embedded within Merseyside’s new music and creative culture. To ensure that our outlook remains relevant and on-point, we’re always looking to improve the depth of this team by welcoming on board new ideas and fresh perspectives. Scroll down to find out how to go about joining this team and pitch us ideas. We also have information about our internship and placement opportunities.
Bido Lito! / The Heartbeat Of A City
If you’re looking to work with Bido Lito! on our monthly print magazine and online platform, we’d love to hear from you. Whether you’re a writer, photographer, illustrator, filmmaker or all-round creative, send over some examples of your work and a short biography to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are particularly interested in hearing from students at the region’s education institutions; people who are passionate about the city’s music and culture, and who would like to bring the stories and issues relevant to them into the pages of Bido Lito!. Being involved with our team of contributors is a great way to shape the editorial agenda of Bido Lito!, to meet likeminded people at our regular Bido Lito! Social live gigs and access our writing masterclasses and workshops.
We offer a number of office-based editorial internships on a rolling basis throughout the year. We love working with people who are passionate about Liverpool’s music scene and creative culture and who are able to write about it clearly and with flair. Interns support the editorial team on the delivery of our monthly physical magazine and with items on our website. They’ll also help with other tasks, including in publishing, advertising and with our membership subscription service. We’re keen to encourage new voices within our organisation and we’re not necessarily looking for interns with professional experience in journalism, editorial work or marketing – enthusiasm for new music and excellent organisation and communication skills are more important.
If you are interested in working with us as an intern, please fill out this form.
We are keen to ensure that our editorial team has a balance of background and lived experiences, which is why you will find some questions relating to that in the above form. You do not have to answer any questions you feel uncomfortable with answering, however. Our programmes are open to all, and we’d like to encourage people from all backgrounds to get in touch with us.
Throughout the year we will be running a number of workshops for contributors, focused on developing vital skills around writing, editing and photography. We’re committed to helping all of our contributors reach their maximum potential, and these dedicated sessions will be designed to offer the right kind of insight and support to those who are interested in developing their skills.
If you’re interested in taking part, please fill out this form. We will be in touch when we have dates confirmed for them to take place.
