Join the 2018 Music Writing Exercise this February!

MWC, Music Writing Challenge, Music Writer Challenge

Music journalist Gary Suarez developed a great exercise for music writers at every level of the profession in early 2015 that has since been revisited every year since. We plan to participate and hope the rest of you will as well. Here are the rules:

Each day in February, listen to 1 full album you’ve never heard, from start to finish. Once complete, write one tweet about the album you just heard and tag it with #MWE so others can follow your efforts.

You can choose any album you wish, but if you’re stumped please do not hesitate to ask us and other for recommendations. In fact, we may post some on here just in case.

Are you in? Tweet us and share your list. Here’s what we will be listening to:
