For over a decade, the focus of the Fretboard Journal has been on great storytelling and gorgeous photography. To that end, we’re always on the lookout for talented new writers, photographers and videographers.

Our favorite stories are fresh, offer unique perspectives and showcase the human element of musicians and lutherie. Whether it’s an oral history of a famous venue or an in-depth interview with a lutherie at the top of his or her game, we strive to have unique content that readers can’t find anywhere else.

If you’re a photographer or writer (or videographer) with a unique perspective on music and instruments, or just a great story idea, we hope you’ll drop us a line.

Our contributors include music historians, world-famous musicians, luthiers, acclaimed photographers and, yes, many of our readers. We pay for all features in the magazine and online though we’re pretty selective about what we run. Let’s talk.
