We know you have thoughts about the Champaign-Urbana music community, so why not voice them here as an engaged community member? Here's how to do it.

Please send us an email at info@smilepolitely.com telling us about yourself, why you're interested in contributing, and all that good stuff. Since we're a hyper local magazine, applicants must have a grasp on local culture — and you don't have to be the best writer in the world.

If you're interested in getting involved, send us an email at the address above with the subject "Music Writer" and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
