DA CAPO Best Music Writing of 2007
(Got some? Send it to Daphne, please)
Hi music writing fan,
It's that time of year – for end of year lists, best of year lists – and I'm writing to you so you can help me get a jump start on another Best Of, the 2007 edition of Da Capo Best Music Writing. Every year, the series collects the best writing of the preceding year across many disciplines. This can only happen with the help of so many wonderful writers, editors, publishers and readers like yourself who can help me get to all the good stuff.
This year, as in every year, I am looking for brilliant essays, profiles, news articles, interviews, creative non-fiction, fiction, book reviews, long-format reviews, blog posts, journal articles and the like. I am also excited to announce that I am accepting short album reviews for a special section of the book – please, if you are an editor of a magazine that runs a reviews section, email me with your reviews editor's contact information so I can get the ball rolling on this.
I ask you to please send your own best work, the work of your publication(s), great work of your friends and colleagues, and 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/email me multiple times as you find more pieces that you love starting right….NOW! and ending by late January at the very latest.
Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org

And finally, please feel free to 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.
Thanks for another great year of writing,
from the desk of:
