The Shunpike is excited to announce the next installment of their successful “Accountability and the Arts” series. “Effective PR: Getting Your Work Noticed” will be an opportunity for artists in all disciplines to learn how to write about their craft in a way that gets the attention of the local media. The workshop will be held Monday April 3rd at 7pm in Buster’s at ACT Theatre, and will feature Lynn Jacobson, Deputy Managing Editor for Arts and Culture at Seattle Weekly.
This free workshop will give artists of all disciplines an opportunity to talk with and learn from a local arts editor about what types of art events get covered in the local media. We’ll talk about what makes an arts event newsworthy, and how to make sure your work gets covered well. Lynn Jacobson came to Seattle Weekly from The Seattle Times, where she was assistant arts-and-entertainment editor in charge of theater, dance, classical music, and film. She is a former professional dancer who toured with the Pat Graney Company and taught modern dance and ballet.
