We are currently looking to expand our content team with 4 or 5 talented guest writers for the dance music culture component of The DJ Revolution blog.
We have big plans for the next 12 months – which YOU could be part of!
Who are you?
Bottom line: We’re looking for people that are genuinely passionate about dance music culture. You might be a DJ, a producer, a musician, a writer/journalist, an avid festivalgoer – or just a mixture of all of the above.
As well as having a good working knowledge of the dance music scene, a variety of journalistic and/or online media experience & qualifications are also desirable, although by no means essential.
What’s in it for you?
In your submissions, we’ll include a link to your website, or wherever you’d like the reader to follow you. For example, it could be your music productions, your blog, your vlog, your DJ mixes, or just a preferred social media profile. This is going to drive market-relevant eyeballs to your work – ultimately building your following and increasing your networks.
For regular contributors, we’ll also tag your name to a dedicated page where the reader can find all your work. This page will be hosted indefinitely on the website, and is also the perfect way to showcase or share your work via a single link.
Published submissions will also be featured in a key position on The DJ Revolution email newsletter and shared across our social media channels. Not only that, there are also genuine opportunities for the right people to step up and join our team on a permanent basis.
What’s required from you?
For these ‘dance culture’ pieces, you can discuss almost anything associated with dance & electronic music culture. You DON’T necessarily have to be an expert on clubs, festivals, DJs, or specific genres of dance music. However, you DO have to be passionate, well researched (where applicable), and knowledgeable about whatever you’re discussing.
How often you choose to submit a contribution is completely up to you. If you become a regular contributor, a good rule of thumb would be to make a submission every 8-12 weeks (whether that’s blog style, an article, or a feature), with a focus on QUALITY rather than quantity. With that said, it’s a pretty flexible gig, and definitely something you can do around a day job or other commitments.
How to apply?
In a few short paragraphs, tell us who you are and what you’re passionate about. If you feel that it’s relevant, you can also let us know what music you’re into and what clubs or festivals you’ve been to (or played at if you’re a DJ).
Please also include the following, either via attachment or in the body of your email:
- Your full name
- Email address
- Where you’re based (city & country)
- Alias/artist name (if applicable)
- DJ/artist bio (if applicable)
- Area(s) of interest or expertise (what you might write about)
- Links to any examples of your writing
- Links to any appropriate social media profiles
More details will be provided to the best applicants, and we promise to respond to all serious submissions.
We can’t wait to hear from you. Best of luck!
