News & Opportunities

Spread the Word is pleased to be supporting Londnr Magazine to find new, exciting writers for the first print edition of their magazine. It’s a chance for London writers to take a subject that they are passionate about and make it compelling for other readers.

Now in its second year, Londnr Magazine is launching a print version to run alongside its strong digital presence. A curated publication focused on the arts, lifestyle and culture in our capital, Londnr’s ethos is firmly rooted in supporting, nurturing and providing a platform for writers.

Committed to promoting talented emerging writers, Londnr is now seeking new voices to join their staff writers. This competition is an excellent opportunity for London-based writers (or writers with access to London) to gain broad exposure to their work and join a vibrant community of creatives at Londnr Magazine.
