Editorial Guidelines

Broadly, here’s what we look for in deciding whether or not to publish an article submission:

  • Market-oriented: Write about a topic that is relevant to patrons of the arts and industry professionals from the visual, performing and culinary arts. 

  • High-quality: Articles should contain quality opinion and analysis. 

  • Originality: If you are writing about well-covered issues, bring a new perspective that others may have missed. 

  • Compelling title: Your title should reflect the content of the article and tell readers why they must read it. 

  • Clean: All submissions must be proofread already, and be free of any grammatical or spelling mistakes.

If you have any additional questions about becoming a contributor, please email and we’d be happy to assist you.
