ArtsTalk Magazine is always looking for contributors to review, in English, theatre performances, concerts or exhibitions in Holland. The only thing we do not include is cinema and recorded music unless there is a very specific local interest. We concentrate on the south west of the country – Amsterdam, Den Haag and Rotterdam and everything in between and to the side.
You must have a keen interest in the arts in general and be fairly knowledgeable – we like our reviewers to be able to do more than just describe the event. We don’t have a “house style” as such but we do like a bit of depth.
There is no payment of fee or expenses because ArtsTalk Magazine does generate any income. However you will have your name attached to your article in a prestige magazine which is read be the public as well as artists, museums, theatres, producers, promoters etc, etc.
In the first instance we would want you to be pro-active and find your own projects because we are not commissioning, as such. If you are going to an event which falls within our remit and want to write a review, we will usually be very happy to use it and, of course, you’ll have your name in print in a prestigious new magazine.
However, in the not too distant future we will hopefully be in a position to commission and if you are asked by us to write a review you’ll get free admission to the event with a best-seat Press Ticket.
We will want minimum 350 (no real max.) words emailed to us in Word, or compatible format, the day following the event or, in the case of an exhibition you have seen, as soon after it has opened as possible. Simple.
So, if you fancy yourself as an arts reviewer, please send a sample review of a show or event you have seen recently via our Contact Us page along with a brief CV and we’ll take it from there.
We looking forward to hearing from you.
