We’re looking for some new contributors to join our ranks here at the internationally respected and read There Goes the Fear. We’ve been going strong for over a decade and would love some music lovers to join us and make their mark on the body of work we’ve been building here. Please read all the items below before filling out the online application. I realise there are a lot of questions but trust me, there’s a reason for all these questions, namely that we are truly looking for people who are passionate about music and can write about it and people who will get along with us – ! Writing for us is also good experience that can advance your career: some of our writers have gone on to positions at major television networks, music magazines and other news outlets and venue management and booking.

So, what perks can you expect from becoming a contributor to TGTF?
1. Mentorship and constructive feedback on your writing from our editor Mary Chang and other staff
2. Access to music before release when working on single and album reviews
3. Access to shows and festivals when covering for live reviews (pending experience with TGTF)
4. Invaluable writing and networking experience in the competitive music industry

We look forward to hearing from you!

there’s also some questions to you – what locations are you interested in? is it a paying position? how many and which items are you expecting? some of those mentioned perks are appealing (tbh early access to music is not hard to come by these days) but you’ve not written much about the actual job.
