ANNOUNCEMENT: The Curmudgeon

The Arts Reader is pleased to announce the launch of a new column titled The Curmudgeon, in which our writers will share constructively snarky advice on public relations in the arts.

There are many reasons for launching The Curmudgeon. The first is that we have received many requests via email and social media for advice on best practices for press releases and other PR communications. We’ve also been asked for recommendations about catching writers’ and editors’ attention, pitching stories, and do-and-don’t lists. We also love snark and humor – and it turns out that many of our readers do, too!

The column so far:
