Do You Have the Write Stuff for Indy Mojo?


mojo-header

Do you always know where the most happening event is in town?

Do your friends look to you for input when they’re searching for something fun to do?

Do you like to try new things?

Do you appreciate live art and music?

Do you seek out good food, stiff cocktails and heady beer?

If you answer yes to some or all of these questions (and you have experience in journalism or digital content creation), I’d like to discuss the possibility of adding you to our editorial staff at IndyMojo.com. Here are some details about what that might entail.

These are examples of the type of content we produce:

- Event previews

- Artist interviews

- In-depth feature articles (2,000+ words)

- Concert & festival reviews

- Music and event news

The majority of our content is related to music, but we do venture into other relevant topical areas, such as:

- Haunted house reviews

- Sledding hill round-ups

- Coverage of Indy Mojo nonprofit events & activities (e.g. Mutt Strut, Zombie Walk, Polar Plunge)

- Judging performances at the Acoustic LIVE Challenge

- New in 2015: the launch of a local food series

If you have firsthand knowledge of Indianapolis culture and would like a platform to have your voice heard, contributing to IndyMojo.com could be a fun and rewarding experience. The gig pays in concert tickets, endless networking opportunities and increased exposure for your work. Additional benefits include one-on-one mentoring, enhanced communication skills, collaboration opportunities with other writers & a built-in, loyal network of supporters, friends, and family.

cassidy2I like being part of Indy Mojo because I am passionate about my local music scene. At Indy Mojo you are welcome to be as involved as you like; there’s no pressure to meet quotas. We are also a little family at Mojo; we all have the same interests and passions, so it’s easy to fit in here. You get to meet a lot of people that make things happen around Indy, and you get to know about stuff before it’s public knowledge!

wes ogden mojoGetting involved with Indy Mojo as a part of the writing team has been a hands-down great experience for me. My favorite parts of the role are free tickets to shows/festivals that I cover and getting to interview some of my favorite artists: Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident/EOTO) and Datsik are a couple personal favorites to date. It’s a great team with solid opportunities that’s led by our editor, Danielle Look. Moral of the story… if you like to write and love music, especially live music, come join the team!
