You, Too, Can Be From Rolling Stone

Did anyone catch the "I'm From Rolling Stone" premiere on MTV the other night? If the six magazine interns bugged you as much as they bugged me, and you're thinking you could do better, it turns out you have a chance to prove it.

Rolling Stone has set up a weekly contest where you take on the same assignments as the wannabe music writers on the show. The first one: Describe your local music scene in 300 words or less. If you need inspiration, you can read the interns' original submissions, which range from good to cringe-worthy.

My favorite part: The big prize for winning the weekly contest is a guitar. Because clearly, everyone who writes about music also plays music, right? The overall prize for the whole contest is a bit better: a new laptop and a three-month blogging gig for Rolling Stone's Web site. If that sounds like a sweet gig, get writing — submissions for the first weekly challenge are due by noon Eastern time on Friday.

The weekly writing challenge is a great idea. (Not so sure about the weekly prize though.)I might get some of my students to try this.
