Get In Touch With The L4LM Team!

Music Writers / Photographers

Provide editorial contributions and get press access to the best concerts!

We are always looking for new writers and photographers to review shows, report on the news, and broaden our coverage of the music industry. If you have previous experience with journalism, are already a well known blogger, or just someone who has a great ear for music, we’d love to hear from you.

Guidelines for writers: If you would like to write for L4LM, please submit an completed article or review that is proofread and primed for publication. Ideally, the written document should be something of interest to the L4LM community, and should not have been previously covered by our contributing staff. Please read through our articles to get a sense of our formatting style, and try to adhere to it as closely as possible. Introduce yourself, and include the copy of your article within the body of the e-mail. The article can either be a piece of unique news, a review of an album or show, or an outline for a feature.

Guidelines for photographers: If you would like to submit photography to L4LM, please submit links to images from previous concerts. If you are an amateur photographer, a link to a personal gallery (such as flickr or Instagram) is acceptable. Please also indicate where you're from, and provide a list of upcoming shows/festivals (within a two month timeframe) that you would be interested in covering. Candidates are more desirable if they are willing to submit a brief write-up with pictures from an event.

Please note that all images submitted for photo galleries and for content on the Live for Live Music website may be subject to watermarking, re-distribution and are done with a Creative Commons Attribution standard license.

We look forward to hearing from you!
