Submission guidelines

All About Jazz is about the music and the people who make it.

Thank you for contributing to All About Jazz, a unique jazz site covering the past, present and future of jazz music.

We have assembled these guidelines to help maintain effective communication and stylistic uniformity throughout the website. We're also hoping that you can use the information in this section to enrich your writing and to ensure that AAJ is as much a good fit for you as you are a good fit for AAJ.

These submission guidelines are meant to be taken as advice and not as hard-and-fast rules. We're striving for the joint goal of effective writing and consistent content. At the same time, we also want to ensure that you enjoy the process.

It's important that every writer cultivate his or her own individual approach to writing, while the overall body of writing at AAJ maintains a stylistic coherence. Above all, we'd like everyone to maintain a degree of professionalism. Approach the music and the artists with respect: always keep an open mind and a critical eye.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
