Calvin Klein is celebrating young creators once again, this time teaming up with music journal Wax Poetics to put a spotlight on a new generation of music journalists.
Highlighting the work of up-and-coming writers, Plugged In gives these talents a platform to explore music history in deep and interesting ways. Over 100 people applied for this program, and of those four were selected, given educational resources, expert mentorship and payment to create a long-format feature about their favourite music topic.
The four people selected are Maeve Hannigan, who used her platform to explore Glasgow’s Emerging Jazz Scene; Vuyokazi Mtukele, a Southern African journalist, poet and cultural critic who created an expansive piece covering Mariam Makeba’s Exile Years; Violeta Arango, a researcher, photographer, visual artist and writer who discusses the Latin Influences of London’s music scene; and finally, Amelia Fearon, who took the time to reflect on Manchester’s Post-Punk Scene.
Each story can be read today on Calvin Klein’s site.
