Are you a designer or developer struggling to get heard? Are there conference you want to go to but can’t afford? Would you like a soapbox from which to stand on top of and scream your thoughts, ideas and insights? We may have an opportunity for you…
We’ve been running the Ubelly Writers Programme (called n.Ubelly) for just over six months, and it’s been a great success. We’ve had five writers attend a bunch of conferences, get their dancing shoes on at The Critters and chase a few features for Ubelly. Now it’s time to take on another five writers, arm them with some tech and conference tickets and send them off to report for Ubelly.
In case you missed it the first time around, n.Ubelly is an opportunity for up and coming tech and design folks to go along to conferences, get involved in Ubelly events and pitch features to the editorial team. We’re looking for 5 people from any background, and there’s only 5 days left to apply (submissions close on the 21st). This is a great opportunity for people who are relatively new to the industry to gain experience, network and get heard by Ubelly’s hundred thousand strong audience.
Don’t take our word for it though.
Here’s what some of our current team have to say anout their experience with N.uBelly:
“Writing for Ubelly has given me the opportunity to attend conferences I might not have attended before and hang out with some amazing people. I’ve also had the opportunity to be a technical reviewer on yet-to-be published books due to my Ubelly articles,” says Shaun Dunne, Code Geek and Responsive Web Samurai.
“Last year, I was privileged to be offered a place on the writing team for Ubelly” says digital & social strategist Wil Benton, elaborating with “It’s invaluable help for a young digital journalist – or anyone trying to make a name for themselves in the tech industry.” Finally, Will recommends that if you’re an aspiring writer with a passion for technology or anything related, he “can’t recommend applying for this year’s n.Ubelly enough. You’ll be looked after by a brilliant team; you’ll meet and talk to amazing people. I’ll be a part of Ubelly for as long as they’ll have me. That surely says it all!”
