Young Guns Network launches ‘commission mission’ for freelance music writers on lockdown

By | Published on Friday 15 May 2020


Music industry networking organisation Young Guns Network and music magazine London In Stereo have teamed up to launch what they are calling a ‘Commission Mission’ to help freelance music writers during the COVID-19 lockdown.

“Those at the earliest stages of their music career have been hit hardest by current events, including the freelancers in our network”, says YGN’s Remi Harris. “We want to support this group as much as we can – giving people paid work and hope – which is why we’ve launched this Commission Mission”.

Both established and upcoming writers are asked to pitch 100 word feature ideas that will “inspire, educate and interest young people aged 18-30 in music”.

Those accepted will be commissioned to write a 1000-2000 word article, which will be published by London In Stereo and YGN, as well as some partner websites, receiving a fee of £200 for their efforts.

The deadline for pitches is 22 May. More details here.
