GROOVE Magazine and Goethe-Institut announce music journalism programme for aspiring writers

German dance music magazine GROOVE has partnered with the Goethe-Institut to offer a music journalism programme for aspiring writers.

There are two elements to the programme, which has been dubbed GROOVE Global. Ten successful applicants from around the world (excluding German-speaking countries) will first participate in ten online workshops hosted by GROOVE staff and held between August 17th and 28th via Adobe Connect. Topics include “Interviews” and “Boundaries And Ethics In Music Journalism.”

The applicants will then be tasked with pitching and writing a feature about their respective local electronic music scenes. Each writer will receive €500 from the Goethe-Institut. Once submitted, the features will be edited, peer reviewed and published in both German and English by GROOVE in November.

In 2018, GROOVE shut down its print magazine after nearly 30 years.
