Do you like writing about music and keeping up with the latest news in the
industry? Do you have the ability and availability to produce music news content
quickly and accurately when called upon? Look no further, because mxdwn is
seeking applicants for positions for breaking news music writers.
The two time slots available for this position will be 9AM PST – 3PM PST and 3PM
PST – 9PM PST, with every day of the week accounted for. Each Breaking News
Writer will take 4-5 shifts per week, depending on what is available and fits your
schedule. The ideal candidate will possess the timeliness and dependability to get
instructed breaking news articles published within 15-20 minutes. Essentially, the
candidate is “on-call” to produce content during their shift.
As breaking music news is fluid in its nature, the writer should be able to adapt and
improvise when necessary within their articles. While we prefer candidates with
strong writing backgrounds, the most important aspect of this role is the ability of
the writer to get their stories published quickly and without factual errors.
This position offers candidates the opportunity to improve their writing and
reporting skills, as well as the opportunity to work under pressure.
