Open Thread - Blog

Dear OT Members, Supporters, and Participants,

Open Thread has come a long way since we began holding events and reading your submissions in early 2007. Since then, we’ve held more fun-filled Variety fundraisers, established a new reading series - POETSBURGH - with Weave Magazine, and created the OT Blog. This month we’re launching the online preview of the Open Thread Regional Review, Vol. 1, which goes to print this January!

We may be wary of open displays of sentiment, but our success is due to you, dear reader. Maybe you’ve participated in our events or submitted your work online for our consideration. Perhaps you’ve simply done us the crucial service of paying the suggested donation at events. Whatever the case, when Vol. 1 goes to print, nearly 100 of your regional peers will have had their work featured by our publications, events, and blog.

Thank you.

To keep this regional arts goodness going, though, we need your continued support, and you don’t have to wait until our next event to deliver! Click here now to make an online donation! Open Thread is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions in behalf of Open Thread may be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

2009 has even more in store for you and Open Thread, including a second volume of the Regional Review, a new regional chapbook competition, more of the events you’ve come to know and love, and some super secret surprises for our registered members! You want to see it all happen, don’t you? Don’t you? Give today.

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.
