Calling all writers

200px-LesterBangs.jpgDo you think reviewers always get it wrong about your favorite albums? Do you feel like your prose measures up to the great Lester Bangs (pictured at right)?

Well, here’s your chance to prove it. Goldmine is looking for writers to supply us with fresh content in the form of features or reviews for our web site, www.goldminemag.com.

If you’re interested, write to me at peter.lindblad@fwpubs.com, send me a few clips of your work, and we’ll talk. Now, these are not paid positions at the moment. Let me repeat that. THESE ARE NOT PAID POSITIONS.

I know what you’re going to say. “Well, what’s in it for me?”

For one, you’ll get free CDs that are yours to keep. That’s perk No. 1. Secondly, getting your work published is the first step to possibly getting a paid job writing for us or some other music rag. Everybody’s got to start somewhere. I wrote reviews and features for an online music site for three and a half years and never saw a dime from it. In essence, this is a labor of love that could vault you into actually becoming a professional music journalist. It’s a great opportunity!

I look forward to hearing from you.
