Aspiring jazz and music writers wanted
(Published: September 01, 2011)

Fancy honing your skills as a music journalist? Step right up, this is the competition for you!

Aspiring jazz and music writers looking to grow their skills are invited to apply to this year's series of The Write Stuff, the new writers initiative that is held during the London Jazz Festival in November 2011.

Now in its ninth year, The Write Stuff is run by the London Jazz Festival in association with BBC Radio 3 and Jazzwise Magazine, giving new writers the opportunity to work with professional journalists to improve their writing skills and develop an understanding of jazz criticism and the music press as well as getting to see a stack of concerts!

The Write Stuff will include sessions on feature writing and live reviews by Jazzwise writer and BBC broadcaster Kevin Le Gendre; an insight into the history and development of the UK jazz and music press with Jazzwise editor Jon Newey; online journalism with Jazzwise and Time Out's Mike Flynn and input from other writers and jazz industry figures.

Previous participants have come to The Write Stuff with a wide variety of different experiences. Several have gone on to have pieces published in The Guardian, The Wire and Jazzwise as well as work within the wider jazz and broadcasting industry. This year's participants will have their work posted on both the Jazzwise and LJF's websites and one review considered to be of particular merit will be published in a subsequent edition of Jazzwise.

If you are interested in participating in The Write Stuff, please email our very own Feature's Editor Louise on louise.musos@gmail.com. She's looking for a submission of 300 word review of a gig/concert that you've recently seen, a paragraph explaining what you'll hope to gain from the experience and your CV by Monday 5th September.
