Guidelines for writing with us:
Express your Personal Style
Show us your voice, speak on your opinion, but be solid on your reasoning behind that opinion. Your article/writing must show your maturity and emphasize substantial thought and not just an unjustified attitude. But make that article yours, put your signature on it with your style of writing as long as it is appropriate.
YOU MUST Be thorough. ALWAYS do an interview with a tape recorder, and save the tapes in case there’s an alleged discrepancy. If you use a messenger service to interview SAVE THE MESSAGES. If you are unsure of any facts in the article, please tell us at the beginning of the article, that way we can help you verify the facts or remove them.
What we’re looking for…
Each feature needs to involve contact with the artist (we will help set these up for you – either in person or telephone interviews if needed). These need to be well-researched, well-written pieces from an original angle. We’d like these to be more than just typical interviews, we want these to be interesting articles diving into the art of the individual. Incorporate song lyrics. Use narrative structures. Appeal to a variety of the reader’s senses—place them in the room with the artist. Make it relevant to the reader’s life—why should they care about this person’s article?
Topics have included rock festivals, independent films, books and music videos. Trend stories don’t necessarily have to be related to music or film, but are preferred.
We strive to give you free range on reviews. We want to know how this artist touches your life and the way they make you feel. Personalize the article make is have your stamp of flavor on it, but be sure the article is not based ON YOU! You are there to cover the music, artists, crowd, etc.. Nobody wants to know about how you looked cute for the show or how many Jack and Cokes you took down. We don’t want our music reviews classified as boring to read, make sure they are fair and objective NOT tearing down the artists and they should also be creative. We respect the story based on an unknown band that is entertaining, but a simple review with no creative insight on a national act would still suck.
In addition to music, we want to cover films that have great artistic meaning. These include upcoming art-house films, documentaries, foreign films and movies that are major motion pictures.
We also cover books, television shows, radio programs, music DVDs, videogames, etc. addressing the music and culture from an open minded perspective. If you have suggestions, we’d love to hear them.
BENEFITS OF BEING A DIGITAL MAGAZINE:
We can have active hyperlinks in any article and we support video. So if you have a well produced video to add substance to your article then by all means include the link to that video as well. Any links you would like to add for reference of material or to link to a particular website for the article it can be done.
