Write for the Orange Blog

So what if you haven't got any friends, you can be a writer!

The Orange Blog Needs You!

We are building an army. We’re not hell bent on world conflict though (for now) but we are very serious about getting some recognition out there for the fine artists, venues, events and music releases that make our lives that little bit more enjoyable each day. We’d like you to be a part of that by joining us in submitting your thoughts on gigs, releases and venues in your area.

No experience is necessary and you don’t have to be the next Orwell or Dr Suess. All you need is the desire to go to gigs, listen to music and write down your honest thoughts about it. If you can take a photo or two all the better. If you’ve got a mate who takes photo’s and you write the words, well, you’ve got the start of an empire. Let’s kick it off here!

If you’d like to know more about becoming a contributor to the Orange Blog please get in touch via the form below.
