Writer On For Rock NYC

Rock NYC is looking for writers. No, we don’t pay but when I first started writing for East Village Eye I wasn’t paid and I took my published work and got gigs at the Voice and Creem to start.

Rock critics aren’t frustrated musicians, we’re frustrated writers and given the opportunity a good writer can start a career here. So far I’ve had the good luck to find three writers who could take what they’ve posted here and get a gig anywhere.





Now it’s your turn. Writing is like anything, just write about anything musical and email it to me at imancharif@aol.com -I’ll try and keep the editing to the minimal and leave you the space to say your thoughts. My readership a day has gone from 3 the day I started to 100 a day five months later. With your help maybe I can actually pay you one of these days. At the very least people will read you (average reader spends 5 minutes on the blog -triple the average for other blogs my size).

Your pal,



Iman Lababedi
