Consider this an open call for submissions for the Best Music Writing 2008 edition. I am pleased to report to you that for the 2008 edition of the book I will be working with esteemed writer Nelson George. I look forward to a fruitful spring of reading and consulting with him on this project.
This year, as in every year, I am looking for brilliant features, essays, profiles, news articles, interviews, creative non-fiction, fiction, book reviews, long-format reviews, blog posts, journal articles and the like on music and music culture-related topics. I have a broad definition of the term music and it includes both classical and noise, so don’t be afraid of alienating on either end of the genre spectrum.
I ask you to please send your own best work, work you’ve edited or overseen, great work of your friends and colleagues, and/or work that you have admired in passing throughout the year. You can send me email links, hard copies of articles, whole magazines (please paperclip/post-it the pages to read), or if need be, just the name/title/publication title/date and I will search the piece out myself. Feel free to mail me multiple times as you find more pieces that you love starting right….NOW! and ending by the first week in February at the very latest.

And finally, please feel free to post this or forward this email widely to all of your contacts in the music writing and publishing community. I look forward to a deluge of mail from all of you in the very near future.
Feel free to email me with any questions.
Thanks for another great year of writing,
