Here’s a Chance to Write About Music and Make Some $$$ (French Needed)

This appeared in the inbox this morning. Do what you will–especially if you or someone yourknow has song French language skills.

Hi Alan,

Hogarth Worldwide is looking for music journalists, music bloggers or people with a similar background with a passion for music to work on regular projects for us. The project would involve creating blurbs for music playlists (short summary or promotional piece) in your own language.

Ideally, the writer will be ingrained in the local culture. Currently, our New York office is focused on three areas: Brazil, French Canada, Mexico. We are looking for writers with fairly good English skills, a finger on the pulse of the local music scene, and firsthand (current) knowledge and love for the local culture.

Therefore, they don’t necessarily still need to live in Brazil/Mexico/Canada, but hopefully just recently moved away or still connected.

The project is set to go ahead mid March and would last until the end of June. We are looking to build a team of 5-10 writers, depending on each writer’s availability. There is enough work for each writer to work full time, if that is the case then we would ask each writer to write up 4 blurbs per hour and the fee is 10 USD per playlist. Each playlist should include a short blurb (90 characters – 5/10 words as a sales hook) and a long blurb (200-400 characters as description).

It would also be great to know which genres you could write about as we will only try to assign relevant playlists to everyone.

This work can be done remotely, but teams need to be in place very soon so we are looking to sign people up ASAP.
