Another Flink Music Writer Recruitment Session Is Coming Up Monday in Toronto

On Thursday night, we had a room overflowing with people interested in working as music writers for Flink, a soon-to-be-launched online music project with which I’m involved.  Response was so strong in fact that we’re going to hold another recruitment session in Toronto on Monday.


To repeat:

The site needs writers and contributors. LOTS of writers. And yes, we’re talking about paying gigs.  They’re part-time.  You work from home and on your own pace–but it could grow into more.

No formal experience is necessary, but you have to a great command of the English language, a way with words and appreciation for written works.  It also goes saying that you must have a burning passion for writing about music.  All kinds of music.  All genres of music.

There’s only room for so many people–we have to keep the numbers down because we stress out the WiFi–so you need to register ahead of time.

If you’re interested in attending

  • Shoot an email to [email protected] with the words MUSIC WRITER in the subject line. Once you’re confirmed, you’ll get the address of the event.
  • Spread the word if you like, but remember that we can only handle so many people.  There’s a lot of one-on-one talk, too.
  • We want to start at 7:30, but if you can get there for 7, that’s even better.
  • You need to bring a fully-charged laptop that you can connect to WiFi.
  • We’ll need about two hours of your time as we introduce you to the Flink ecosystem and explain how you can make some cash as a Flink music writer.
  • We’ll jam on some stories together.
  • You’ll be assigned some homework (if you choose to accept it, of course).
  • Food and refreshments will be served. (We had lots of pizza on Thursday.)
  • And yes, we’ll answer every question you may have.  I’ll be there, too, of course.

If you’re NOT in the Toronto area, hang tough.  We’re working on ways to bring recruitment night to other areas of the county.
