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. Add to this the recruited talent of Mr. Brownstone and the contributions of Ollie from the band Grifter, and the Ripple family has grown nicely.
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 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.
