    Hello there, I hope you'll be able to help me. I'm a recent graduate and I'm looking for opportunities all over the internet to start out as a journalist writing for online UK magazines. Unfortunately I can't find anything related to news, health and nutrition, ecology, history, fashion, topics I'm all very interested in. I found lots of magazines that accept prose contributions or even poetry but not 'standard journalism'. How am I supposed to begin? I'm more than willing to work for free in order to get experience. Thank you so much everybody

    Hi Dreamscometrue,

    Are you still looking voluntary experience in this sector? We are always looking for current students and recent graduates to help with content creation on our brand new site.

    This would be a great opportunity for you to gain that vital work experience in a commercial sector and get that all important reference. We are based in Birmingham but this will not matter as work could be submitted via email.

    Let me know what you think?
