Submit your Reviews
by Sandra Tyler, Editor-in-Chief
From its inception three years ago, WTP has sought to grow Web traffic for noteworthy artists and writers, in our magazine, by having readers click on the name credit to learn more about a contributor; we also deepen these connections to our contributors, by exploring the creative process and featuring interviews, insights and shoptalk, whether relating to creative writing, visual arts, photography, or multi-media. We have high aspirations–overall, we aspire to become the quintessential hub for the creative on the Web.
By hub, I mean a gathering place and guide to the best and most inspiring works, visions, ideas, and resources related to the arts on the internet. In addition to our magazine and site features, now on this blog we seek to offer book and art exhibition reviews, as well as actual reviews of recommended Websites.
We invite you all to join our WTP community, contribute your expertise, and help us to broaden our reach.
Please consider submitting:
Book reviews: from your blog or even Goodreads.
Reviews of art exhibitions: Include a short bio of the artist, their website, your feedback (this does not need to be long nor a formal critique; it could be as organic as your own personal reaction, how certain works might inspire your own etc. We are open to your own interpretation) and photos of the artwork. Note: you will need to procure the permission of the gallery curator to take photos.)
Website Reviews: On your own meanderings around the Web, we would love to have you recommend sites to us you deem worthy of being spotlit. (Along with another’s site, you may also submit your own–paying it backwards perhaps?)
Ideally, each month we would serve up various compilations of websites, much as one of our contributing editors, Donald Kolberg, already does with his “Coffee, Tea, Art and Blogs” posts. In addition to the arts, we would have one for the literary, photography and video.
Your reviews we will link back to your own website. And if you consistently contribute to our WTP Blog, you may prove eligible to join our WTP editorial advisory board and help to further shape the magazine.
Keep in mind too that we are always seeking ideas for new site features; you might already have one up on your own blog, such as a post about a recent art project or perhaps writing tips. Send us the link and we can considerrepublishing it on the WTP features page. It would also show up on our homepage.
We hope to hear from you! You can email me directly, with website links, ideas for reviews, or any other ideas you might have, for what you would like to see on our blog: firstname.lastname@example.org.
