We promise this glitz and glamour!

We want writers.

We want writers excited about L.A. music, whether that music's Latin, classical, soul, hardcore, hip hop, rock, jazz, funk. Just be passionate about it.

We want writers who are able to write for both online and print audiences.

We want writers who self-edit and fact check.

Upcoming Events

We want writers who are up for anything, because we'll throw it all at you.

Interested? Please follow these instructions to apply:

Send a never-before published blog post that we could run right now on West Coast Sound to musicx@laweekly.com. We want to hear your sparkling, lively voice telling us about some aspect of L.A.'s music scene.

If you have them, feel free to link to a couple of pieces you've written recently. Also, please include the best email address and phone number at which to reach you.

We look forward to meeting you!

We won't be able to reply to each submission individually. Because the process may take several weeks, please don't call or email to check on the status of your application.
