    As some of you may already know, in addition to being the owner of LPAssociation I am also the owner of AltWire, an online music blog that has ran some pretty awesome features and interviews with some big names and artists over the last few years. The website is located at http://www.altwire.net and we have an archive of our available interviews here: www.altwire.net/category/interviews/

    Some of our favorite interviews to date have been:

    Amy Lee - https://www.altwire.net/2016/10/12/altwire-interview-amy-lee-evanescence/ and https://www.altwire.net/2017/03/26/altwire-interview-amy-lee-2/

    Chester Bennington (RIP) - https://www.altwire.net/2015/03/12/altwire-interview-chester-bennington/

    Charlie Benante of Anthrax - https://www.altwire.net/2016/02/04/altwire-interview-anthrax/

    ...and many more!

    The purpose of this post is that we are currently looking for people who love writing, and are willing to post news, write album reviews, and even conduct interviews with bands on a volunteer basis. We are hoping to find people who are passionate about music, and who are looking to become part of a ambitious team that's looking to take AltWire to new levels in 2018!

    Writers would have the options of being able to gain press entry to concerts, and interview their favorite bands as well as get an opportunity to hear music before it's release legally.

    Please reply here, or contact us here: http://www.altwire.net/contact/ if you're interested. I would ask that you please also submit an example fake news post/album review (just a quick write up) so we can have an example of your writing ability. There's no limit to how many writers we're looking to bring on and if we become a community of writers from this post alone, then so be it.

    Hoping to hear from some of you soon! I'd love to have some of my LP family be a part of AltWire. Thank you!

    That seems kind ainteresting and i would be open minded to try it atleast, but i have a little bit stress in the moment (Exams are coming soon, urgh). But if you want, i could try my best and help a little bit. You deserve it, for all the people they know each other because of you and LPA. But as i said, not now, but at the end of February i could do whatever you want me to do.

    When the time is right, i will contact you on AW. Guess i just have to improve my english a little bit, haha.

    I tried to be a writer in the early days and wasn't very attentive to it back then. I wouldn't mind trying again for album reviews, I would just need to find time to do it. :)

    Wouldn't mind giving you a try on the site, if you're willing to commit to at least two stories a week.

    Negative. Just decent writing skills, and an openness to doing 2 stories a week and occasionally being offered a news story/assignment to post.

    I'd certainly be interested. I live in the UK so that may help in terms of having more staff spread around the globe. I'm particularly interested in Electronic and Hip-Hop and I note the majority of the site is currently Alt-Rock, Indie, Alt-Pop oriented. So hopefully could add a new element to the mix.

    I used to do live event photography work and could easily pick that up again if the site needs images (artists i've worked with have included bands with no.1 albums).

    I'll work on an article and send it your way. I don't want to just do a fake one because it'll seem forced. Rather ensure the passion comes across in the writing.

    Please PM me any further details.
