Getting the word out

Want to get the word out about your arts or cultural event or exhibit? Here are some tips on sending out information to the public and local media.

Step 1. Gather all the details: who, what, where, when and why.

Step 2. Gather graphics for publicity. Gather photos, create a logo if necessary, work with a designer on the look and any printed materials.

Step 3. Write a press release and/or prepare a press kit and send to the media.


The Press Release

Press releases inform the media about your event and can inspire the media to publish a calendar listing or even cover the event. Click here for a description and example of the anatomy of a press release.

  • Try to let the media know what makes your event unique or relevant.
  • Be genuine. Exaggeration or inaccuracy will only hurt your chances of being a reliable media source. The more a press release reads like an actual news article, the better. Many smaller publications love releases they can print verbatim.
  • Press releases should look professional and be easy to read. Type double-spaced.
  • Make sure the organization's name, address, website and contact information is visible.
  • Include the media contact's name, direct phone line and e-mail address near the top of the first page.
  • Include a "pull date" (the last date of the event) near the top of the first page.
  • Include a headline that summarizes the event and invites people to read the details.
  • All the most pertinent information should be included in the first paragraph - the five W's. Who is presenting what, where and when? Why should people attend? Include information on how people can attend or buy tickets, locations of ticket venues or website, e-mail and/or box office phone-line information.
  • Additional paragraphs can provide more descriptive information about the event, artists involved and quotes.
  • Use your mission statement or general description of the organization at the end of the press release.
  • If the press release is longer than one page, write "-More-" at the bottom of each page. At the end of the last page, include "# # #" to indicate the end of the release.

The Press Kit

Press kits provide useful background information for members of the press writing previews or reviews of your arts or cultural event. A press kit should be organized in a folder and generally includes:

1) Organization Information (front to back on the left side of the folder)

  • Mission statement
  • Brief organizational history
  • Organizational brochure
  • Feature articles on the organization or lead staff
  • Board list
  • Business card for media contact

2) Specific Event Information (front to back on the right side of the folder)

  • Press release for the event
  • Photos or artwork related to the event
  • Event postcard or flyer
  • Event program
  • Artists' bios, if not in the program
  • Preview articles about the event

Note: Do not include reviews of the event or previous events in the press packet. Most reviewers do not want to be influenced by the opinions of others.


Online calendars

There are numerous websites with online events calendars to use to publicize your event. Here are few:


Daily and weekly papers

Send your press releases to local newspapers. Here are some of the dailies and weekly papers to begin with.

Description

Call for Poems: Death Penalty
The death penalty is not about whether people deserve to die for the crimes they commit. The real question of capital punishment in this country is, do we deserve to kill?
― Bryan Stevenson, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption

A total of 110 executions have been carried out in Washington State and its predecessor territories since 1849. Five executions have taken place since the death penalty was re-enacted November 4, 1975. Eight men are currently on death row. They can choose death by lethal injection or hanging.

On February 11, 2014, Governor Jay Inslee instituted a moratorium on capital punishment. He and Attorney General Bob Ferguson introduced legislation to abolish the death penalty in Washington State on January 16, 2017.

Efforts to ban the death penalty fizzled out in the Washington State Legislature during the final week of the 2018 legislative session. Senate bill 6052 marked the most successful attempt in the past five years — and possibly ever — to erase the state’s death penalty and replace it with life in prison without parole. But it wasn’t enough in the end.

Status of states regarding the death penalty: with, 31; without, 19; in moratorium, including Washington State, 4.

Readings set in Port Townsend at Northwind Art Center Reading Series and Imprint Books / Writers’ Workshoppe in Port Townsend. More locations wanted.

How to Apply

CALL for POEMS—Repeal of DEATH PENALTY. In support of WA Governor Jay Inslee’s moratorium and a repeal of the death penalty, send poems for a chapbook for readings in WA. Poems for chapbook deadline: July 1, 2018. Deadline for OUT-OF-STATE and more WA poems for an anthology: Dec.31, 2018. In progress: anthology publisher and locations for readings. Contact & submissions--Sarah Zale: sarahzpoetry@gmail.com Send max. 3 poems as attachments with bio.

Organization Overview:
Since 1987, Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) has championed the literary arts by inspiring and engaging readers and writers of all generations in the greater Puget Sound region. We provide children and adults with opportunities to meet writers and cultural thinkers; to read and reflect upon novels, poems, and other literary works; to encounter new ideas and artistic creations; to develop their own writing; and to engage in meaningful and open discussions about literature, culture, and society. We believe these activities are essential to the development of a more creative, thoughtful, and democratic society. SAL fulfills its mission through these programs: Literary Arts Series, Poetry Series, Women You Need to Know Series, Journalism Series, Hinge, SAL Presents, Summer Book Bingo, and Writers in the Schools (WITS).

At SAL we value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. We are committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in all areas of our work and encourage applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, disability, and veteran status.

Position Overview:
The Marketing Coordinator works with the Associate Director to implement marketing, advertising, communications, and engagement efforts to increase the visibility and impact of the organization, our mission, and programs.

The ideal candidate is an extroverted book person who enjoys building relationships with a diverse span of people—from media partners and donors to grassroots organizations and individuals at events. The Marketing Coordinator must be able to know when to multi-task and when to dive deep; must be a team-player in a highly collaborative environment; to think both quantitatively and qualitatively; to look simultaneously at the big picture and to listen to the individual story.

December 14th, 2018, Narrows Brewing will be holding an art show for local artists!
This event is to show our support to our local art community, as well as to raise funds for 'Art With Heart', a program based in Seattle which serves kids and teens who've suffered from traumatic life experiences by facilitating trauma-informed, creative expression programs and training practitioners all over the country to lead their programs and maximize their impact on as many children as possible. Each artist chosen for the event will be required to donate a one-of-a-kind original piece of art for the night's raffle. All the proceeds made from the raffle will go directly to the Art With Heart program, to support the children in our community. More information on the program will be provided at the event.
The theme of the Night? Creatures of the Deep.
Each artist is required to follow the theme: Creatures of the Deep; there are many ways to be creative with this theme, and we look forward to seeing everyone's take on it!
As the event is being held at a Brewery, each applicant must be at least 21 years of age. Space is limited to six artists; each artist will have a 7x6 space, and is required to bring their own display materials to properly showcase their work. There will be no wall availability to hang work, as this is a one night event. Each artist is allowed to fill their space however they see fit, though we are requiring a minimum of 5 pieces to display. All artists are allowed to put out and sell printed copies of their displayed originals, including copies of their donated piece. For the donated piece, canvases may not exceed 30 inches in width, or 40 inches in length. Artists that are selling their work are required to have a visible price tag for each piece; it is not required to have a title-tag, but is encouraged. All artists are required to stay for the entire duration of the show, 5:00 p.m to 9 p.m. Artists must arrive with all materials a minimum of 45 minutes early to set up, though and are allowed to come earlier if need be.

HERE Now: Art Inspired by the Immigrant Experience
The Arts Council of Lake Oswego invites immigrant artists based in the U.S. to submit works around the theme of the immigrant experience. Works will be curated as an exhibition in our ARTspace gallery.
HERE Now: Art Inspired by the Immigrant Experience is a planned exhibition that will bring together works by artists from a wide range of backgrounds to explore American immigration through personal experience. Works may encompass a variety of media and styles, engaging the deeper meanings of transcultural migration to the United States.
The exhibition will take place from February 15, 2019 to April 5, 2019 and include a variety of concurrent programming including a First Friday Reception and an Artist Talk/Lunch Time Lecture. The Lunch Time Lecture will take place in partnership with the Lake Oswego Public Library as part of their L.O. Reads program. This year’s Lake Oswego Reads book is, The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henríquez and includes themes of immigration.
In this novel, the word “unknown” takes on different meanings. These characters are unknown within the country they have worked so hard to be able to call home—but they are also, in large part, unknown to themselves and to each other. Their futures, too, are unknown, and the longer they stay in America the more unknown they become to the people from their pasts. As Henríquez’s characters struggle with unknowns, identity, they come to embrace the reality of the American dream— the feeling of being unseen and unknown. In spite of all of that the characters persevere toward success and happiness.
As the only dedicated visual arts gallery in the city of Lake Oswego, the Arts Council and its ARTspace have a unique opportunity to inspire thought and conversation through art. The Arts Council of Lake Owego’s mission is to ensure that arts are accessible and an integral part of life in our community.

What kind of beings are we that we need sleep? What kind of life do we have when we sleep? How can art met in waking life shape dream life? How can art dreams shape waking life?

In this exhibition, we invite work that investigates these questions.  Show us work that represents sleep, evokes sleep, investigates sleep. Send work you’d like to sleep with: Guests will be invited to spend the night with the show.  Consider how sleep secures memories and learning. For example, trauma victims are encouraged not to sleep directly after an experience. The brain, rather than inactive, activates itself in a new way. A lack of sleep has been tied to numerous psychological and physiological illnesses, yet the average American today sleeps two hours less than a century ago. Sleeping together can be time of intimacy, and yet we each sleep alone.
 
Work in any medium welcome. We invite proposals for site-specific installations for the sleeping loft of the gallery. Details for submission below.

NB: We are a small space... only a few of the wonderful submissions will fit. We thank you ahead of time for sharing your work.

• 2-3 sentences (max) about the relevance of the work to the show.
