we are now hiring

We are delighted to be able to announce that we are now looking to recruit a new featured columnist to our team of writers. As a featured columnist, you will produce two print-ready articles, of various lengths, on different topics, to tight deadlines, four times per year. These articles will then be printed and read by thousands of subscribers who buy our magazine across the world. This is a non-paying position; however you will receive a free subscription to the Calling Spots fanzine and are likely to receive free merchandise (such as t-shirts, buttons, etc) as and when we make them. More importantly however, you will have the opportunity to build your portfolio of work, along with the distinction of having your work published in a growing printed publication.
