Burnaway, the Voice of Art in the South, is accepting proposals for long-form articles about contemporary art in and from the South. Essays, profiles, think pieces, issues and commentary, roundtables, and other forms are welcome. Subjects can be historical if presented through a contemporary lens.

Writing fees will range from $250-500, depending on length (2,000-5,000 words) and the writer’s experience.

In the interest of expanding our geographic reach throughout the South, we are also recruiting new writers for reviews of exhibitions and art-related books, films, and performances; news stories, interviews, studio visits, and content that adheres to Burnaway’s existing standards. Please become familiar with our content before submitting pitches.

Pitches should be no more than one page and should explain the subject, why it’s suitable for Burnaway, and include relevant links. Please include your CV and two writing samples.

Please submit to Logan Lockner, Editor at logan@burnaway.org.


Burnaway welcomes all pitches in service of our mission. We receive more pitches than we can publish. Please note that we are a small but dedicated staff. Please review our website to get an idea of previously published content, styles, and themes.

Think broadly. Potential stories could involve Southern artists showing in New York, Los Angeles, or elsewhere; artists from outside the region visiting the South on residencies or teaching stints; and figures having an impact on the South.

Burnaway also posts book and film reviews, Q&As with artists and art professionals, previews, opinion pieces, news stories, collector profiles and stories about collecting, and more.

How to Submit Pitches

Please include dates of exhibition (if time-sensitive) and all applicable links, with a brief explanation of the subject and your approach.

Email pitches to logan@burnaway.org.
