In particular we are looking for people who love and are knowledgeable about dance music to cover Reading’s underground dance scene.

Lifestyle Writers

Passionate about food, drink and shopping? We’re looking for people who can write about Reading’s retail and culinary scene – whether it is food reviews or features on Reading’s best cocktail bars.

Marketing volunteers

Currently, Alt Reading has an audience over 20,000 readers a month but we want to grow more. Our marketing volunteers will help come up with new ways that we can reach more people who live and work in Reading.
