Get involved

You don't need any experience or special skills to join Forge Press. We welcome everyone. There is no application process and we will teach you everything you need to know. There are opportunities for photographers, writers, web designers and more.


Forge Press alumni have gone on to become journalists and producers at national organisations like the BBC, the Mirror, the Daily Mail, and many more.

Employers value the skills we teach, from project management, copy-editing and teamwork through to working with industry-standard software like Adobe Photoshop, Indesign and WordPress.

You'll also get free tickets to any play, film or gig you review for us, and we'll provide feedback on your writing.


Just come along to one of our regular contributor meetings. We send out reminders by email and on social media. We also email out regular requests for articles.

You can also join our Facebook contributors' group.

Become an editor

Our team of volunteer editors are elected every year in the spring, at our annual general meeting. We publish more details nearer the time.
