AZ Mag and DJ Mag collaborating on a free writing workshop later this month (April).
As part of DJ Mag's ongoing partnership with AZ Mag, an online publication and social space, as well as event organisers, for LGBTQ+ people of colour, we'll be offering a free writing workship for aspiring music journalists via Zoom in April.
The workshop, which is open to QTIBPOC (Queer, Trans, Intersex, Black, People of Color) who are interested in freelance magazine writing, will be faciliated by DJ Mag's editor-in-chief, Carl Loben, features editor, Lauren Martin, and digital editor Rob McCallum.
With almost five decades of experience in the arts and cultures industry, attendees will learn from hosts how to break into the industry/become a journalist, the importance of a writing style, news writing, feature writing, and advice on how to pitch to publications.
The free workshop will take place online on Wednesday 21st April from 4PM until 6:30PM. You can sign up for a ticket here.
Earlier this year it was announced that DJ Mag would be sponsoring and mentoring Xilhu Ayebaitari Ese to create a Dance music project as part of AZ Mag's Creative Fund. Xilhu – whose artist name is Ayebaitari – will be using the grant to launch a new project, Queer Rave: a community project that celebrates and represents queer, female and genderqueer Drum & Bass DJs.
