LEIMAY-CAVE is currently seeking writers for its online publication,conectom. The aim of the project is to report and comment on new developments in visual arts performance, contemporary performance, hybrid stage and installation works.
As a writer, you will make contributions ranging from interviews, reviews, essays, and development journals. You will be in contact with LEIMAY-CAVE’s local and international network in addition to any individual projects you are interested in proposing. A strong concentration for conectom is the adaptation of critique style to contemporary works. This means doing away with traditional theater or visual art criticism when writing about contemporary performance, visual performance art or other hybrid works. As such, you will be expected to learn a new perspective when writing about performative works, be it considering your position as a spectator or situating the works you are writing about within their proper context.
We are seeking persons with a strong interest in contemporary performance and visual art performance. Writing experience is preferred, but a strong ambition to become involved in the performance medium is just as important. Our tentative launch date for the writing series is September 15th. From then on, we aim to maintain a well-updated publication, therefore we ask that you submit one article every three weeks (Occasional writers are also called please feel free to apply and specify your interest).
conectom is an artist/audience network and online publication focusing on visual arts performance, contemporary performance and hybrid stage works. conectom features an artist directory with a permanent and rotating portfolio display, community forums, interviews, written and photographic essays, development journals, and an ever-updated, curated calendar of performance events in New York City.
Please send your resume, a writing sample, and a brief cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 25, 2012.
In the absence of a writing sample, please describe your interest in becoming a staff writer for LEIMAY-CAVE as well as your interests in visual arts performance, contemporary performance and hybrid stage works. Additionally, we are also interested in photo essayists and an editorial intern. No monetary compensation is available for these positions.
