Ripple Needs Your Help - Writer's Wanted
The Ripple Effect is growing so big, so fast, there simply is no way for us to keep up with all the quality music that comes in. Our poor little staff of Racer, Pope, Woody, and Old School -- aided and abetted on occasion by Iggy and Birdman-- have got stacks upon stacks upon stacks of great music to write about. And now they could use just a little help.
Yep, the Ripple needs to expand and we've got openings for one or two more writers. We'd love someone who has a mind for lots and lots of metal. We mean heavy, dirty, deathy, blacky metal. We could also use a great mind who loves emo, electro, and indy pop. If it happens that both those minds are in the same person, then so much the better.
So, if you'd like to write about music, get lots of free music to review, and have your column syndicated across everything from GuitarWorld Magazine's website to USAToday, let us know. We can't pay ya, other than in good music, lots of love, and a lifetime membership in the Ripple gang.
All it takes is a desperate passion for music and the desire to tell people about it. As fun as the gig is, we'll only take people with a serious commitment to listening and writing. Nothing half-assed about the Ripple.
Send in a writing sample about an album you love, 5 or 6 paragraphs. Tell us why you love it, how it makes you feel and why the rest of the world should care. Create some ripples.
That's what we do here at the Ripple Effect. Create some ripples.
