Intermission publishes artist perspectives, original journalism, spotlight profiles, and audio and video content. We typically steer clear of theatre reviews, traditional previews, and basic Q&As and instead focus on content that can’t be found elsewhere.

ARTICLES

If there is a story you want to report on, an issue that needs exploring, or an artist you believe merits a profile, get in touch. We also welcome pitches from artists for personal essays and opinion pieces on topics of importance. 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 go 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
  • • If the topic you’re suggesting is time-sensitive, please send us your pitch eight weeks before you’re hoping to publish the article

    We’re not currently accepting story pitches. We’ll update this page when that changes.
