MUSIC WRITERS & BLOGGERS
Membership is free for any music writers or bloggers (professionals or amateurs - active or retired). Please fill in the Music Industry people join form above and provide us with some links of your work or alternatively just tell us what you have written in the past. Written work here is all voluntary and will be all open source / creative commons and you will be credited for your work (if you wish). Also the writing style on our site is to be encyclopedic (similar to Wikipedia) and we do not want opinion based blogging narratives nor do we want critiques, only encyclopedic styled writings in the 3rd person. We'd prefer to keep the context and tone of writing on our site friendly, positive, respectful and uncontroversial or to not have those writings at all. No hyped or Gushed Up or PR styled writings please, any that we come across will be suspended until they can be rewritten or alternatively deleted; please keep your writings descriptive - Not Hyped!!!. Original research is allowed on our site, but this is not a place to push opinions, only encyclopedic facts and stories (preferably sourced/referenced, but not essential) about the music industry and its various music artists and outfits according to our style guide, required formats and rules. Although we have a much more relaxed view to contributed content on our site (compared to say Wikipedia) and will allow some misdemeanors through if they don't quite meet our style guide, we will need to contact you about any problems we come across to see if we can mutually fix it rather than delete it. Please remember we see EVERY single edit on our site via the recent-changes function on Wikidot. As for benefits - all music writers and music bloggers who become members of Music Industrapedia will be given an encyclopedic page on our site under your name which in turn be placed under our music writers sections within the Music Media section for the country you reside in and/or originated from. Being a wiki, any other member of our site will be able to edit that page and vice versa, except in special circumstance (as controlled by our admins). All credited writings you create will point back to this page of yours to promote you as a writer and also because every piece can be tracked back to that person. Please Note: There is no anonymous contributed writings to this site, everything is traceable to ensure responsible writings. Being a writer on our site also allows you to promote links to your own site or blog in the LINKS section of a particular subject (person, music artist, music business, etc), so if you have an opinion you want to express, please link your critique, blog or site to that page instead. Please be respectful of existing written work on our site and please add to it rather than change or replace it. Please contact us first for permission before you consider replacing any writings that already exists to avoid conflict within our community of contributors. Permission to change that written work will then be considered in a speedily manner after it has been reviewed by a member of the Industrapedia Music Council.
MUSIC JOURNALISM STUDENTS & OTHER MUSIC INDUSTRY STUDENTS
Membership is free for Music Journalism students. Other music industry student will also be considered for free membership. All we need is a sample of what you have written from your course or some proof of your music industry school or industry related course. This is a great way to get your career started and we do offer writers credits for articles if preferred which link back to your own free industry profile page.
