Contributor’s Guidelines

About two-thirds of SOS is written by freelance authors, and we’re always on the lookout for new writers. Stories previously published online will not be considered, but those published in print outside North America are open to submissions. Apart from reporting sports house news, they also cover horse care and profiles of prominent horse people.

We’re interested in craft and poems that make us want to read them again. We aim to publish a new poem every Thursday morning. We publish at least one piece of prose and one poem each week. The Curator explores the meaning and matters of the heart and spirit reflected in cultural objects, experiences, and the arts. We’ll review your submission and get back to you quickly.

Your article will be edited and proof-read before it makes it into print, so don’t worry about adhering to detailed style guidelines. It’s essential that all but the shortest reviews include pros, cons and a line or two of summary. Depending on the article, we may also expect you to supply photos or screen captures. And feel free to seek advice from editorial staff about how to structure and style your writing. As far as SOS is concerned, a feature is pretty much anything that’s not a review or a workshop. That includes all of our interviews with artists, producers and engineers, but also historical articles and theoretical pieces like our explanation of how Audio over IP works.

We are interested in building relationships with text and video bloggers who focus on music and wish to be part of our music making community. Payment shall be made within 10 days from invoice date. If payment is not processed on or before the due date, the article or links will be removed from our website. For those of you who already author a music blog, this can be your chance to publicize it. If you join our team, you’ll get your blog’s name listed next to your very own name. Underground or indie music has never been so popular than in recent years, thanks to more inexpensive technologies, strong fan support, and websites such as iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, and Facebook.

Content available online at may have been updated or corrected from the originally published print material. Sojourners reserves the right to correct any errors or omissions in this content. There is no restriction on topic or theme, but poems that intersect with and illuminate the perspectives found in Sojourners are most likely to be used. We look for original ideas or images, well-drawn portraits, and new perspectives on the issues we cover.

We keep you informed of the most recent information regarding new releases, tour dates, and information items about your favourite artists. The concert scene is vibrant, and artists are now touring not only in the country, but also all over the world. You can cover live concerts, create a personal account of your experience, or write about any upcoming tours that local people should want to attend. Another avenue to explore, are more general arts & culture publications, of which there are hundreds.


We read each email and regularly answer inside one business day.
