We here at DC9 at Night talk about music pretty much constantly. We talk about it every weekday on the blog you're reading and once a week in the pages of the Dallas Observer. If you enjoy talking about music as much as we do, and can also express those thoughts in writing, please email me at Kiernan DOT Maletsky AT DallasObserver.com.
Please include in your email:
-The words "music writer application" in the subject line. -Three writing samples. I don't care if they are from The New Yorker or your now-defunct LiveJournal. -A few sentences about why you're interested in writing for the section. -A phone number where I can contact you.
Here's what you'd be getting yourself into: We work predominantly with freelancers, and you'd join a group of fine writers and DFW music experts. Hopefully, avid reader, I don't need to tell you what kinds of things you'd be working on. But I will tell you that we are interested in a wide variety of music. We are interested in interacting with people and documenting this metroplex's musicians, concerts and nightlife, and we are not interested in snobbery of any kind.
