So, you’d like to write for GIGsoup?
GIGsoup (www.GIGsoupmusic.com) is a relatively new music website. Our purpose is to give our thriving readership access to reviews of the latest albums, EPs, gigs and festivals while still providing them with the day-to-day music news.
So, how can you help? Well the website needs the best content, and plenty of it. If you’ve had experience of writing at any level then we’d love to feature your articles – this could be as a hobby or via university/college etc. We have thousands of followers who like to be kept abreast of the current trends, artists and tracks and we’ll ensure your articles are shared (via the website, social media and feeds) to every single one of them. Your audience will be huge and is continuing to grow at a jaw-dropping daily rate. It’s so important that you’re given the opportunity to grow as writers while still being given a platform to air your work.
Currently we are covering 65% of the weekly album and EP releases but would love to be in a position where we cover 100%. We also need writers to work on the daily news items that bring in such a high amount of new readers. It’s so important that music lovers are given up-to-date news items, tour information and those release stories that drop each week.
GIGsoup are also looking for writers to attend gigs and festivals. We can supply guest-list and photo-pit access and obviously access to the artists for interview purposes. All we ask is for a full review of the proceedings and a few pictures if you’re able to get them. We have current writers attending gigs and festivals all over the globe and reporting back on genres and events they may not have stumbled across if it were not for this opportunity.
This really is a position that you can make your own. Why not bring ideas of features to the table? There are so many subjects that may need a more personal touch and our readership is always interested in opinion pieces. The sky’s the limit with this role and as you can see from the above paragraphs it’s extremely varied.
GIGsoup is a cutting edge music website and we aim to deliver quality journalism (album reviews, gig reviews, interviews and general music based articles) to our thousands of readers from all over the globe. We concentrate on the standard music genres but have been known to dip our toe into the more obscure music-fields as well.
