About the Ink 19 Corps

Ink 19 is an all-volunteer, online music and culture magazine. This means that we don't pay for articles or other content, and cannot predict when or if this will happen.

If you are looking to broaden the list of publications you work for, just beginning your writing career, or simply enjoy doing whatever it is you do and sharing it with a large audience, then by all means contact us. Following are some notes and guidelines for aspiring staffers.


1. Talent at whatever it is you're trying to do.

2. Reliability in execution and meeting deadlines.

3. Familiarity with email, Web forms, and electronic file conventions (where applicable).


We'll take writers from all over the planet, as long as they have email. If you make the cut, and we'll let you know, we'll start you off with CD reviews. Review it or return it; you can keep the CDs that you review. Reliable, experienced Ink 19 staff may request guest-list access to concert or event reviews, or access to in-person or phone interviews for feature pieces on bands or artists.


We love to include our own pictures with our stories; however, it helps a lot if you can write up a show review to accompany the photographs you take.

As with stories, Ink 19 reserves the right to choose which and how many photos we will use.
