DIVA is looking for a talented staff writer to join the team

Do you love writing, LGBQTI culture and working with a diverse team? Then we want you to come and join #TeamDIVA!

This year, DIVA celebrated its 25th birthday, so naturally, we’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about the past. But now we’re thinking about the future, and we need a talented and ambitious staff writer who will help take us there.

As DIVA staff writer, you will work closely with the rest of the editorial team, producing original and engaging content for print, online and DIVA’s social channels. 

You will have exemplary writing and research skills, understand what makes a great story, and know the best medium to tell it in.

You know how to turn a social post into a viral hit, make a press release shine, and can spot an errant comma from 50 yards away. You are flexible, unflappable, and confident in juggling a range of tasks without breaking a sweat.  

You are smart, witty and passionate, and care deeply about LGBTQI culture. You’re as comfortable writing about celebrities as you are politics, have bags of ideas on how to grow the DIVA brand, and can’t wait to show us what you’re made of.


DIVA is the leading magazine for lesbians and bisexual women, and one of the most successful LGBTQI titles in the world. First launched in 1994, we publish 12 issues a year and pride ourselves on being at the cutting edge of queer culture. Our various platforms provide comment, news, politics, humour, reviews and scene coverage to keep readers informed and entertained.

Interested in joining the team? Then send a CV, cover letter and a 500 word blog on a topic you feel is relevant for the DIVA website to Carrie Lyell at editorial@divamag.co.uk. Please note applications without all three will not be considered.

This role is part time, working 20 hours a month on a freelance basis. We particularly welcome applications from those with minority backgrounds and individuals with intersecting identities.

Applications close 31 May 2019.
