Get in touch!
Wanna tell us that you think we’re rad? Cool! Wanna tell us that you think we’re terrible? Bit weird, but we can’t do much to stop you. All comments, requests, suggestions, fan mail, etc. should go to firstname.lastname@example.org and Jade or Kristy will get back to you as soon as they can.
Wanna write for us? Even cooler!
Here’s what you need to know:
- We’ll make anything you write for us as good as possible by offering considered feedback and edits, helping you to develop your craft and opening up any opportunities that we can.
- We have a strict No First Drafts policy, so if you’re not comfortable with the idea of being given feedback and reworking your writing, this isn’t the one for you!
Because it’s best to be upfront – we don’t have a budget. Everyone at Track 7 (editors included) does this as a hobby, so please be assured no one is getting rich off this thing or quitting their day jobs. Our only income is via Patreon, which currently covers the cost of running the site. When we hit a point where we can reasonably do so, the first people to get paid will be the writers. Many of our writers have secured paid work at other publications as a result of the development they’ve received – and that’s something we’re proud to keep supporting.
If you’re still interested, send over the following:
- A pitch! Tell us which band, artist(s) or topic you want to cover or interview, and a solid angle for either a feature, essay or long-form review. Get a feel for what we do by reading a few of our articles.
- Some examples of your previous work – this can be from other publications or a personal blog, for example. If you don’t have any examples yet, have a go at writing something you think would fit with our style – working with writers to improve their skills is what we’re here to do, and so we need to get a sense of where you’re at with your writing.
We’re friendly and chill people, so if you have any questions or want to talk something through – please get in touch. We actively encourage a diverse range of voices and will prioritise those under-represented in music journalism.
