Intermission publishes a wide variety of content including, artist perspectives, original journalism, spotlight profiles, and audio and video content.
Content not directly generated by our Intermission team falls into two different categories.

A CONVERSATION BETWEEN ARTIST AND AUDIENCE
However, if you’re an artist, not looking to promote anything, but have something that you’re passionate about we want to hear from you, no partnership necessary. We welcome pitches from artists for personal essays and opinion pieces on topics of importance. Successful pitches will be teamed with our editors to transform your idea into a published Artist Perspective on our site. If you are new to Intermission, please get to know the kind of work we publish before reaching out.

Guidelines and notes:
- All voices and writing styles are welcome
- Send in a pitch rather than a full article
- If we do accept a pitch, we suggest a word count of 1000–1500 words
- To keep quality high, we go through a rigorous editorial process on all articles; expect to work on several drafts before the piece is ready to be published
- We’re a tiny team and due to the amount of submissions we get, it’s not always possible to respond to everyone. Please don’t let that discourage you from submitting pitches in the future
- Publishing date is decided on by Intermission based on the readiness of the piece and how it fits into our overall publishing schedule.
