Art Write For Us
Are you an artist who is also passionate about writing? Then you could earn some extra cash by becoming a ghostwriter for our website.
We are looking for articles on any art-related topic.
It could be an article about the history of impressionism or an interesting article about a famous artist like Picasso. It could be a marketing strategy to sell more paintings, or it could be your review of a new set of paint brushes:
1) Be in perfect English
2) be 100% unique (must be able to pass Copyscape)
3) be interesting
4) be related to art and artists
5) be a minimum of 700 words long
Your article should also:
Offer a clear argument, not just a list of tips and tricks.
Have a voice. We want pieces that are bold, interesting, and human.
Keep our core readership of professionals in multiple creative disciplines in mind. If your piece focuses on one discipline—type design or photography. Consider what people from other fields can learn from it and how you might appeal to those readers.
Typically be around 800 to 1,500 words (though longer or shorter isn’t out of the question).
Be checked for the accuracy of facts, figures, quotes, and names, with citations if needed.
We do not publish:
Product pitches or press releases.
Profiles of “fine artists” and individuals or firms without an established track record.
Follow-ups to articles we’ve published unless they add significant new value.
Any story that has been published elsewhere, including your blog.
