Seeking Editors-at-Large

Burnaway seeks editors-at-large based in Nashville, Southern Appalachia, and the Carolinas to join the editorial team this fall. Working closely with the magazine’s editors in Atlanta and editors-at-large in New Orleans and Miami, these new editors will serve as regular contributors to Burnaway and as representatives of the organization in their respective regions. Applicants should be experienced writers and editors with an established presence in their local communities. Editors-at-large receive a monthly stipend.

If you’re interested in being considered for a position as editor-at-large, please send a cover letter and two writing samples to Burnaway’s editor-in-chief at logan@burnaway.org.

Pitches and Submissions

Magazine Proposals

Building on our commitment to publishing thoughtful, rigorous writing on contemporary art in the South today, Burnaway will expand the magazine by producing long-form articles on three themes annually. Stories, artist projects, and other media related to each theme will be published simultaneously throughout the year in order to produce a cohesive inquiry into aspects of Southern culture and life. As Burnaway is a primarily digital publication, these editorial themes will provide an opportunity to experiment with approaches to online publishing and shake off the chronological and fixed nature of print magazines.

We invite our readers to submit pitches around the themes of Exurbs and the Rural, Waterways / Water Wars, and States of Leisure by emailing logan@burnaway.org by September 1, 2020. Submissions should include two samples of previous writing.


Burnaway accepts submissions of and pitches for short-form exhibition reviews (250 – 350 words) for flat fee of $75. Pitches and submissions for exhibition reviews should be sent to Burnaway’s editors, Logan Lockner (logan@burnaway.org) and Jasmine Amussen (jasmine@burnaway.org). Submissions should include two samples of previous writing.
