Description: IM Magazine is a slick, full-color, bi-monthly journal for the independent music industry, independent artists, and fans of independent music.

Editor(s): Alexandra Kerl

Needs: We always need artist features, interviews, critical essays, and articles about trends and innovation in the world of independent music; we never need columns or rants. We expect articles to be well-researched and have more than one source (except in certain cases, we’d prefer three). We want intelligent, thoughtful music journalism that will be of interest to the independent music community. We don’t write stuff about major label music.

Length: Depends on piece. Generally between 500-3000 words.

Tips: We're always looking for creative new minds, so go ahead and query us.

How to Submit: We accept both submissions and queries. If you’re sending us a query letter, follow the below directions. _x000D_ Tell us what you want to write about, how long it will be, who you will talk to, and what art you have for the story. The query should convey your approach, tone and style and why you are qualified to write this article. Remember that the magazine’s lead time is two months and material should not be dated.

Response Time: We attempt to respond within three days.
