We are looking for new writers

We are looking for new writers! Yes, we are talking to you: somebody who likes discovering new music (in any genre, we don’t really focus exclusively on particular styles of music) and has a sharp pen (or keyboard, tablet or phone for that matter).
The requirements are simple: a love for music, a desire to express that love through words and importantly: commitment to a regular contribution. We’re looking for people that can write something at least two pieces per month, at minimum. On the other hand, “Quality over quantity” will always remain our motto, so we don’t enforce deadlines on our reviewers. If you need to work a little longer on a certain piece, make sure you get it right. Interested? Send our editor an email at simon [dot] vanbockstal [at] gmail [dot] com.Be sure to include the following:
1) tell us who you are
2) tell us why you would like to write for Netlabelism
3) include a review of a recent cc/netlabel release. Length: around 500 words

We’re looking forward to working with you.
The Netlabelism Team

    Is the post still vacant?

      Hi Ryan,
      There is more than just one position available. We’re almost always looking for more writers.

    How about reaching a potentially interested (but not English-fluent) audience through:
    1- content in a language other than English
    2- translating site English content into that other language
    How does that strike you guys?

    Thanks for the feedback. Although we’ve toyed with that idea in the past, we’re currently not planning to translate articles into other languages.
