RMA Student Blog: Call for Contributions

The RMA Student Blog offers an inclusive, student-led platform to showcase the vitality and breadth of our shared disciplines. We, as the Student Committee for the Royal Musical Association, are aware that networking with fellow students in your area of study can be difficult. With lockdowns, isolation, conflicting schedules, finding those with like minds may be limited. This is why we want to bridge this gap between students and offer an online platform where you can share your ideas and get inspired.

We are looking for PhD, Master’s, and undergraduate students who are interested in sharing their thoughts and perspectives on music, music research, creative practice, or their student experience. We welcome submissions exploring the research, creation, and experience of any aspect of music studies: works in progress, completed work, personal accounts, opinion pieces, interviews, conference reports and informative articles.

Posts are usually between 750 – 2,000 words and we accept audio, visual, and multimedia contributions as well.

Benefits of submitting your work would include:

  • Sharing your current research, interests, and thoughts with the UK community of music students and researchers
  • Having your writing appear on RMA platforms
  • Working with other music students

How to Share Your Work:

  • Submit your proposal briefly describing the theme and format of the planned post to Barbora Vacková: barbora.vackova@hud.ac.uk.
  • Proposal should be no longer than 250 words
  • .doc or .docx format
  • Include: your name, email, institutional affiliation, and position.

All proposals will be read by at least two members of the student committee with decisions being communicated no more than one month following submission.
