If you’re an artist passionate about an industry related issue or artistic concern (not specifically related to a show you’re hoping to promote), we want to hear from you!

We welcome pitches from artists for personal essays and opinion pieces on topics of importance. Successful pitches will be guided by our editors and published as an Artist Perspective on our site.

If you are new to Intermission, please get to know the kind of work we publish before reaching out.

Articles to read:
  1. Wrestling with “Success” – by Christine Horne
  2. So, You’re a Dora Loser — by Curtis Campbell

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 800–1,000 words for finished pieces.
  • To maintain content standards, 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 number 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.
