Art Intercepts is a mostly Chicago-centric dance blog focused on promoting dialogue about dance training and performance through scholarly research and editorial writing. We have a wide audience of readers who love to watch, perform, and read about dance, spanning the globe.
Since its creation in 2009, Writer/Editor Lauren Warnecke has been the sole content creator for the site, but let’s be honest, she’s a busy gal. Perhaps you’ve been writing about dance, but you don’t want to commit to running your own blog. Or perhaps you want to “test run” some of your writing to an established audience. Art Intercepts is now inviting guest contributions to the site, so you can be a part of the lively dance community online.
Submitting a guest post is pretty easy…
Just email it to email@example.com as a Word document. However, please adhere to the following guidelines:
- Submit a whole, complete post, ranging in length from 500-1000 words. Drafts, pitches, and incomplete submissions will not be considered.
- Before writing, become familiar with the content of this blog. It is more likely that your post will be published if you align your topic with the blog’s subject matter and tone. The Editor reserves the right to use her discretion in selecting which contributions will be published.
- Include a headline, byline, and biography.
- If possible, include a photo of yourself and a photo that applies to the post, following all standards of practice with regard to permissions and attributions.
- If selected for publication, the Editor reserves the right to modify the content of your post, within reason, and format your content. Major changes will be communicated with the author prior to publishing.
- You may send multiple articles with your submission.
- Topics that aren’t ok:
- Outright promotion of a product, project, show, etc.
- Things totally unrelated to dance
- Opinions are great, unfounded ones aren’t
- Derogatory comments, name-calling, hate speech, and/or excessive profanity will not be tolerated. Under any circumstances. Just don’t do it.
