Applications for Plugged In were open to any music journalist ages between 18-25 and living in the E.U. or U.K. The selected winners are a diverse cast of individuals, each with their own musical influences and their own story to tell. They capture individual expression of language in the music world.
Together with our host Kate Hutchinson, we brought the winning participants—Amelia Fearon, Maeve Hannigan, Violeta Arango, and Vuyokazi Mtukela—together to disucss their pieces, their experiences in the music journalism industry, and what excites them about the future.
