What is this life, why do we strive? Fast on a wheel, too fast to feel. One day, my love, this life will slow. Sam Brookes - One Day

Apply to Write

By Volume has a dynamic team of passionate writers that really give a damn about music and love expressing that excitement in words on pages. Some of us write about punk, and others write about jazz, but every member of our staff is just trying their best to do the music they love justice, and being badly paid as a side-effect.

If you’re a passionate writer, we don’t care about qualifications, experience, contacts, location, age, height or shoe size. We’re not even geared towards one genre or another – as long as you can argue your point vociferously and eloquently, we’ll get along great.

If that sounds like you, please fill in the form below. And that’s a real “please”, because we love reading as much as we love writing, and we are always looking for new people to add fuel to that fire.
