We’re looking for bloggers!

Readers, bloggers, students and avid music thinkers!

We’d like you to write for us.

The dealio is – we’d like to expand and grow our point of view and musical influences here at A Thousand Guitars. But, this is a blog and blogs don’t entirely pay the bills, so we’re looking for writers who are more likely here to learn a bit about working online, we’ll offer as much guidance as we can give, sweet, endless references if you deserve them 😉 and a small per-published-article payment.

The truth is, even with the massively small payment, you’ll be making more money off this blog than I do. A Thousand Guitars is a passion project and we want it to expand. But we’re here for the love (and the live music) and not at all, unfortunately, about the money.

So fill out the form below if you’re interested and let’s lose endless hours discussing the influences of hipster Americana DJs from Brooklyn!

(jokes, no one who likes DJ music will be accepted.)

(that’s also a joke.)

UPDATE: An excellent recommendation from a reader – we’re adding a mini assignment in the form below:

The band that sings your favourite song ever – they’re playing a gig in a city (wherever you are), the day after you leave it. You cannot change your plans and you’re going to miss seeing a live performance of the song that sets your soul on fire and makes your knees weak. What is that band? Describe the song? Describe the gig you think you’re missing and why you’ll have to hunt them down one day.

Four years ago, Monica needed a new hobby, so she started this blog. Right now, she can't believe people are still reading it. If you are, she loves you for it.

She believes John Lennon's Imagine is a blueprint for a perfect world and that a house should never not have wine in it. She is currently failing at going vegan.

    Can I make a suggestion: Yes, people applying need to be able to write well. That’s a given. But when you whittle us down (yes, I applied and no, I don’t need the R75 – doing it for love!), how about having us tell you how Dave Hause’s live version of Hot Water Music’s “Trusty Chords” make us feel, describe our goosebumps at the first listen of DCFC’s “Plans” and try to convey our disappointment that The Gaslight Anthem is playing a show in New Jersey on the day we leave the USA for home after an NYC/DC trip? Music is transformative (good, honest music, no commercialised crap). We should show you that we feel it in our bones. Thanks for the opportunity.

      From that comment alone, I’d like to know if we can get married, please? And I’d give you my blog and all my thoughts. Jokes, I’d never give anyone my blog. But you win at life. Making an edit to the post along those lines now.

      Thanks!
