Think you know music? Got a strong opinion? Do you have a particular set of skills?

New Times is seeking music writers to write essays, hot takes, and other stories about the music world, both nationally and locally. We're looking for writers who can turn a phrase, have a sharp intellect, and are passionate about writing. If you have deep knowledge about hip-hop or Latino music, that's even better.

Interviews, criticism, and concert reviews are part of the game when it comes to freelancing for the music section. If you're interested, please contact Music Editor David Accomazzo at david.accomazzo@newtimes.com. Please include a resume and examples of published work.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
