Write for Us

A message from our Editor-in-Chief:

The UK Anime Network is not run for profit, nor is it a professional publication. It's a website run by fans with contributions by other passionate fans of the genre.

We're always looking for bright new contributors to help us expand our coverage, and in the last 20 years we've helped budding young journalists and fans to take on positions as writers and editors for other publications, or even move on into the anime and manga industry. The UK Anime Network has a pedigree that has helped to boost many a CV!

As the creator of this website, I can personally attest to just how much of a difference participating on websites such as ours can bring to your career, or just your enjoyment of the medium as a whole.

If you'd like to write for us, there are a number of options available to you; fans of anime, manga, Asian cinema or video games are always welcome to contact us to help us with reviews. This simply entails emailing us using the form below and the appropriate editor will contact you. We send out review copies provided by the companies that trust us to write detailed, fair reviews of their product, and as such all we ask is that any item is reviewed in a timely manner.

If you're more interested in writing articles for the site because you have something you'd like to say, we're happy to help there too. Again, just contact us on the form below and let us know what you'd like to cover.

For those who contribute and cover events or launches, UKA will, where appropriate, cover your travel and associated costs, but we do not pay for content. Should the site ever be fully monetised, that may change in time, but for now we are not a company and therefore do not pay for contributions to the site.

If you're happy with the above and want to join the team here at UKA, we'd love to hear from you.
