Seeking Guest Posters in Major Cities

If you're a college student or intern, there's a decent chance you might spend time working, commuting to, or living in a new city you're not familiar with. That can be a daunting transition. So, we need your help to make that transition easier for other students and interns all over the country and, hopefully, globe. We recently launched a new column dedicated to compiling resources and recommendations for young people who are new to different cities around the country- generally because they've moved there for school, an internship, or a job. Our first post, Resources for Students and Interns in Philadelphia, focused on Philly. Here's what we're looking for:

Who: Anyone who lives or works in a major city with a great music scene or great music industry program and is willing to share their knowledge of that city to help fellow students and interns who are new to the area.

What: Create a list of recommendations and resources, similar to this article, for your city. Think about the things you would tell a friend who is about to move there: what are the best places to eat, places to find housing, how does transportation work, what are cool places to go, and what do you need to know to survive the transition.

Where: Any major city with a good music scene or a school with a good music program including, but not limited to:

  • Atlanta
  • Austin
  • Berlin
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Houston
  • London
  • Los Angeles
  • Melbourne
  • Memphis
  • Miami
  • Montreal
  • Nashville
  • New Orleans
  • New York
  • Ottawa
  • Paris
  • Saint Paul
  • San Diego
  • San Francisco
  • Stockholm
  • Sydney
  • Seattle 
  • Toronto
  • Vancouver
  • Washington DC
  • Any other city in the world with a great music scene or a school with a great music industry / entertainment program. We're open to suggestions! 

When: Starting immediately and ongoing

How: Email me letting me know what city you're interested in writing about and why you think you'd be good for the job

PS. All guest posts are unpaid, as everything on this site is created to help others, not to make money. However, we'll promote your post and can link to your website, social media, resume, etc.
