JOIN US AT THE BAR
REACH THOUSANDS OF READERS & WRITERS
You can join our team of rock n roll drinkers by writing for our online site or you can contribute to the print magazine which is available in bars and cafes for free around London. Our London base is ran by professional editors who will help you find interesting stories and writing in our "gonzo" style.
WE'RE GOING DOWN TOGETHER
We will give you constant feedback on your articles so you can improve and become the rock star writer you've always dreamed of becoming. Then, when you decide to sell out, we will can help provide you with a reference.
THE BORING (BUT IMPORTANT) SHIT
Submissions and contributions will become the property of The Carouser for all world publishing rights. Please read the full terms and conditions here. General submissions will be considered for publication on thecarouser.com.
First submissions will not be paid for but will help towards you being considered for future articles and assignments whether it will be paid in booze, money or free gigs.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
The Carouser always needs writers on the ground across London and beyond. We cover anything from a backstreet dive bar to the O2 arena. We consider writers for future events and coverage after their first submission, and if you are proven to be a consistent and reliable writer, we will pick you for the best opportunities. You suck our dick, we suck yours (metaphorically). Types of things we cover online:
- Bar Reviews
- Gig Reviews
- Drink Reviews
- Beer & Burger Reviews
- Book Reviews
- Film Reviews
- 'Top 10' Pieces
- Event Coverage in the style of Hunter S Thompson*
- Short Stories
*Any coverage pieces needs to be previously approved by an editor due to the coordination of pairing the article with an illustration.
Inspired by Ralph Steadman's collabortation with Hunter S Thompson, The Carouser Magazine is looking for artists to add colour to the magazine and online site for pieces and illustrated 'coverage' pieces. If you are interested in illustrating a 'coverage' piece or photographing an upcoming event, please submit samples of your work after registering below. If we like your style, we can send you to festivals, gigs and other events to bring the piece to life through art. We will always give you credit and link you your own site. Types of things we need:
- Festival & Live Gig Illustrations
- Cover Designs
- General Photos
- Crowd Photography
WHAT WE’RE NOT LOOKING FOR:
The Carouser does not accept works that have been previously published elsewhere, in any venue. This includes all forms of digital self-publishing.
We do not accept works that does not fit the genre we are currently soliciting.
We do not accept multiple submissions. If you have more than one piece, you may only submit one at a time. You may submit another once we have responded to your first submission.
We prefer that you not simultaneously submit your story to The Carouser and other venues. If you do, however, and your piece is accepted by a different venue, please immediately withdraw your submission from us.
WHAT WE PAY:
As a small independent publication, we try to be as fair as possible. After 1 or 2 submissions we'll offer you payment in the form of food, drinks and gigs. We also offer you free access to our own organised tastings, launch parties and much more. If that sounds like your kind of thing, we'll be happy to have you! Follow the link below.
