The Singles Jukebox is looking for new writers.

The Singles Jukebox is home to a talented roster of writers from around the globe with passionate, critical voices dedicated to the spectrum of modern music. While this has been a highly unusual year, we remain a collective with a friendly community of writers interested in exploring diverse genres and unfamiliar sounds.

The site is seeking applications from writers with bold ideas and a willingness to tackle new subjects. All are welcome to apply, including those who have previously expressed interest in writing for the website. We are particularly interested in writers whose voices are under-represented in music criticism and strongly encourage women and people of color to apply. Many of our writers have honed their voices at TSJ and have gone on to write professionally elsewhere.

If you’d like to be considered, please submit the following as an email to applications@thesinglesjukebox.com (no attachments, please) by midnight at the end of 15 November 2020:

1. Three blurbs on songs of your choosing from the following list:

2. A blurb on one of your least favorite songs of the year so far.

3. A blurb on a song from this year that we haven’t covered.

4. A sample of your music writing — this could be anything from a published review to a post from your newsletter you’re proud of, anything you think represents the best of your work. If you don’t have anything suitable, please add a blurb for a fourth song from the list.

Include a line or two telling us about yourself if you like.

All blurbs should be up to 250 words of clean, concise copy and include a score from 0-10 that is well justified by the writing. Take a look at our website to get a sense of our style. If you have questions, send an email to applications@thesinglesjukebox.com. All submissions will be considered, and we will respond to all applicants.
