Designed to deepen and expand Burnaway’s coverage of South Florida, this unique partnership will highlight Miami’s visual artists for a national audience. Working with both organizations, the Miami Contributing Editor will write and commission timely and relevant reviews, essays, features, and artist projects from both local and national writers focusing on Miami’s visual arts community. Essays will be published on both Burnaway and the Oolite Arts website.
At the helm of this program is incoming Miami Contributing Editor, Jason Katz, who is responsible for working with Oolite Arts and will join the Burnaway masthead. A Miami-born and raised writer and educator, Katz publishes Islandia Journal, a printed literary magazine of (sub)tropical myth, folklore, cryptozoology and the paranormal. His work has been featured in the Miami New Times, Bitter Southerner, Saw Palm, Miami Magazine, Miami Rail, and the Seminole Tribune.
