art writing guidelines

  • We publish accessible prose (aka, not academic writing). Send us your best original thinking, under-told stories, and pieces that lift up marginalized groups.
  • Let us know if you’re submitting the piece to other publications.
  • Film, exhibition, and book reviews should be 400-600 words, and tell the story for readers who may be unfamiliar with the work.
  • If you’re submitting a pitch, ensure that it fits on one page and is ideally no more than 6 sentences.
  • Essays, features, and interviews should be no more than 1500 words, and take art as a starting point for a broader engagement with society. Tell us why your project is relevant today.
  • Pieces should be formatted using the Chicago Manual of Style.
