Open Thread - Blog


October 13th, 2008
Adam Atkinson

If you’re reading this, you probably know at least a little about our organization and its mission. You might also know that we highlight local poets in our POETSBURGH reading series, and that we feature musicians, comedians, performance artists and more in our Variety Variety Variety fundraisers, AND that Vol. 1 of our Regional Review - teeming with emerging artists and writers - is due out later this year. (Register and submit your work for Volume 2 today!)

So how does a blog fit in to the mix?

Regional Organizations
First, we’ll be providing you with periodic profiles of other organizations that serve Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The Lit, the focus of our first profile, provides exactly the kinds of services emerging artists are looking for: events, competitions, publications, seminars and workshops that are all open to the public.

Artists of the Week
You could be new to the region and looking for an arts community. Maybe you’re an artist and you want us to help promote your work. Or perhaps, like us, you are simply in continuing to
discover this region’s emerging art, writing, music and more. Each week, the Open Thread Blog will introduce you to another artist, writer, musician - any upcoming regional guy or gal whose life is in the arts!

News and Events
Submission deadlines, upcoming arts spectaculars, or updates on Open Thread’s own happenings: we’ll help you stay abreast of what any local producer (or consumer) of art ought to know.

Publication of the month and other reviews
Zines, books, journals, albums, chapbooks and more are pouring out of (and into) our region. We (along with some guest writers) will point out a few that are worth some of your meager artist income.

We’ll post every week - so check back regularly. Welcome to the blog - and welcome to a little more of your regional arts community.
