Thank you for your interest in contributing your skills or showcasing your work through Stain’d.  We do our best to continuously create opportunities for artists, writers, and musicians in Denver. 

Any current opportunities are posted below. 

Ongoing Opportunities for Musicians

Stain’d is currently accepting inquiries from musicians interested in performing paid 30-60 minute sets at events: 

Stain’d Open Mic @ Whittier Cafe: monthly open mic features a 30-minute paid set from a featured musician or poet
Stain’d release parties & events: 30-60 minute paid set
Soul Stories: we also refer musicians for 30-minute paid sets to Soul Stories 

Interested musicians: send a brief email with the subject line “Music Inquiry” to claire@staindmagazine.com. Be sure to tell us what you do and include demos, links or videos if you have them! If you know someone who would be perfect for this opportunity, feel free to connect us. 

Offer A Workshop

Check out our events to get a feel for what we offer. We welcome inquiries about workshops we should consider offering. Workshop facilitators are paid for their contribution, but are asked to help promote and fill their workshop. 

Reading Series

Each summer we host a reading series one evening a month for each of the three summer months. We are looking for local authors (poets, creative nonfiction, fiction, etc.). Please email with a sample of your work if interested!

Event & Street Team Volunteers

If you’d like to show up early to help out with event setup or help us connect with new artists and communities by flyering the town, contact delia@staindmagazine.com
