Looking For Contributors

We are always on the lookout for new contributors, for people passionate about Latin American and Caribbean culture with a strong interest in deepening their knowledge of the music, film, TV, art and literature from the region, as well as writing about creativity in society, technology and the environment.

One of our ambitions has always been to offer opportunities to young writers, and that is something that we believe we have done. Many of our writers have used Sounds and Colours as a means to gain experience of writing and editing, while others have found a platform for expressing their passion for Latin American and Caribbean culture. Whatever you’re looking for, we will do our utmost to make sure contributing to Sounds and Colours is a fulfilling experience.

We have a number of available positions:

  • Editors – we are looking for editors who want to improve their craft, as well as WordPress skills, and would like to work closely with our editorial team. This role would suit someone with good communication and written skills and who can use their own initiative to make decisions about potential new content for the site
  • Contributors – if you would like to contribute to Sounds and Colours in any way, whether you would like to write articles or submit photos, videos or illustrations, then please get in touch. This could just be a one-off contribution or on a regular basis. Essentially, if we like the idea and it relates to Latin American culture then we would like to publish your work!

Sounds and Colours is a website dedicated to Latin American and Caribbean culture. This means we write about music, film, TV, art, literature and theatre, as well as some articles on politics, society and the climate. To us, Latin America and the Caribbean is represented by the region and its diaspora, including people who have spent large amounts of time in the region or who have some kind of roots in Latin America or the Caribbean.

If you’d like to contribute to Sounds and Colours please send an email to [email protected] with a short explanation of why you would like to contribute to Sounds and Colours and your particular interest in Latin American and Caribbean culture.

We look forward to hearing from you!
Abrazos / Abraços,
Sounds and Colours

Note: All contributions are unpaid, unless agreed otherwise.
