Art Intercepts is a mostly midwestern dance blog focused on promoting critical dialogue on dance and performance. We have an established audience of readers who love to watch, perform, and read about dance, spanning the county and globe.
From 2009-2017, Lauren Warnecke was the sole contributor for this site, and now we’re ready to grow. Perhaps you’re interested in writing about dance, but you don’t want to commit to running your own blog. Or perhaps you want to publish your writing in a place you know it will be read. Or perhaps you live in a city where there’s not enough dance coverage.
Art Intercepts is now inviting guest contributors to the site, so you can be a part of the larger dance community online.
Submitting a post is pretty easy…
Just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 editors reserve the right to use their discretion in selecting which contributions will be published.
- Include a headline, byline, and short 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 editors reserve 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:
- Reviews or previews of a show you are directly (or in some cases indirectly) involved in as a performer, collaborator, donor, administrator, etc.
- Outright promotion/marketing of a product, project or concert
- Things totally unrelated to live performance
- 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.
… and if you like us and we like you, there are opportunities available to contribute on a regular basis.
