Music Writers Wanted! Come Join the Ripple
Our first call for writers brought us the stellar talents of Penfold, who's been regaling us with imaginative tales from the netherworlds of music writing. Our second call brought us the wonderfully heavy world of Horn.
But, we think we're still a bit short.
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. And now we could use just a little help.
We've got openings for one or two more writers. We'd love someone who has a mind for lots and lots of emo, electro, and indy pop. We could also use another gifted metal writer. 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. And the Ripple now gets more than 1,000,000 readers a year. And growing.
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.
