Are you interested in writing about art? We would love to hear from you! We are adding to our list of interested writers as we program for 2023. There is no deadline for this – the program runs on a rolling review process. We will call on individuals based on common interests and thematic compatibility with upcoming exhibitions and events. If we feel that you would be a good fit for something, we will email you with an invitation to write for us!
Selected writers may be called upon to respond to specific content such as an artist’s practice, residency, arts collective, an exhibition, or an event. Eastern Edge will pay $200 for roughly 400 words to be distributed through publication on our website, based on current CARFAC rates.
While all candidates should possess some working knowledge of contemporary art, we are also interested in establishing contact with writers involved in other fields of research to bring a unique perspective to our programming. Writers of non-art backgrounds, as well as emerging artists and writers, are encouraged to apply.
- Two short samples of writing, no longer than 800 words each (excerpts welcome), saved as a PDF, representative of your style range.
- A short description of your subjects of interest.
- CV or list of credentials and previous publications (if any – not required!)
- Please include your pronouns.
We encourage (but do not require) anyone who identifies as BIPOC, queer, or a person with disabilities, to self-identify as such in their application.This opportunity is for new and emerging writers, or anyone who wants to try their hand at writing about art. Writers who have produced written work for EE within the past 2 years will not be considered. This call is open to everyone, however, EE will prioritize writers who live in, or have a connection with Newfoundland and Labrador.
