Freelance Writer — Music Critic

Ludwig Van is always looking for talented writers to join our editorial team. If you have a deep love and knowledge of classical music and/or opera, drop us a line, we’d love to hear from you.

We know how much work goes into this, and so this isn’t a work for exposure deal. We pay all our freelancers the going rate and will discuss this first before you start writing for us.

What we’re looking for

A freelance critic to review various events including orchestral, chamber, solo concerts around Toronto.

Position responsibilities

  • Cover a broad range of classical music in the Toronto area.
  • Ensure articles written following our editorial guidelines and are submitted on time.
  • Take the necessary steps required to produce content, which may include attending events, telephone, email, and in-person interviews.
  • Capture quality photos for accompanying articles, as needed.
  • Maintain a close connection to the arts scene, and stay up-to-date on news and events affecting Toronto and beyond
  • Uphold our professional integrity through quality, and ethically produced work.
  • Build and maintain relationships with industry professionals — while remaining at an arm’s length.
  • Identify all possible conflicts of interest.


  • Degree or diploma in journalism, music, or English an asset
  • Experience writing for a print or online publication — (blogs included).
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Understanding of social media.
  • Ability to interface with editorial members, publicists, and the public both remotely and face-to-face.
  • Flex creative muscles and seek to improve your writing.
  • Skills in photography an asset.

Benefits of working with us

  • Strong potential for long-term career growth and development with a fast-growing company.
  • Be part of a close-knit and well-connected team that works hard, but knows how to have fun.
