Exeter Observer is looking for occasional and regular contributors to help create and deliver our community journalism.
We welcome contributions from aspiring or experienced writers, researchers, editors, photographers and video makers as well as people with social media skills who can help with content promotion.
You do not need any special qualifications or previous experience of writing or journalism to get involved. We offer free training and education followed by ongoing support to help potential contributors learn skills and gain confidence.
If you are interested in holding wealth, power and influence to account, are prepared to put time into investigating and reporting on issues that matter to local communities and have local insight or network connections then we’d like to hear from you.
We want to ensure talent has access to our platform regardless of privilege, so we are keen to welcome contributions from under-represented groups of all kinds.
And if you possess expertise in regional policy-making or delivery and would like to offer your perspective as an ad hoc editorial consultant, please also get in touch.
You can find out more about our editorial values and operational aims on our about pages.
