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.

Deadline to Apply

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.

Description

The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas (BFI) launched its programs nearly 13 years ago, in October 2005. BFI believes that the power of words, well-written and well-spoken, can open doors to important opportunities. Our writing, publishing, and after-school tutoring programs prepare students, ages 6 to 18, to succeed in our diverse world by developing strong writing skills, championing different communication styles, and helping kids share their stories. All programs are free and open to families from any socio-economic background (http://www.fearlessideas.org).

The Job
We are seeking an Executive Director who can embrace the qualities that have made BFI a valued and successful organization focused on inclusivity, creativity, and community. This person is able to inspire creativity in children, volunteers, and staff; encourage kids to let their individuality shine; and teach them that even their zaniest ideas are worth writing down and sharing with others.

We are seeking a visionary Executive Director with well-honed nonprofit leadership and management skills and experience helping nonprofits thrive and grow. Our Executive Director must also have a talent for attracting donors, a passion for investing in the potential of each student, and a gift for running an organization with grace and humor (preferably equal parts wry and wacky).

Job Responsibilities

Leadership
• Collaborate with the board and staff to promote, distinguish, and carry out the mission of BFI.
• Respect and nurture the expertise, creativity and commitment of BFI's wonderful staff; oversee the hiring, development, and productivity of new staff to guarantee their success at BFI.

• Make sure our programs meet the requirements of funding sources and achieve the intended outcomes for the kids involved.

• Develop collaborative and mutually beneficial alliances with youth organizations, nonprofits, arts organizations, families, schools, foundations, corporations, local officials, and community partners.

Fiscal Management
• Develop, implement, and monitor BFI’s annual budget in collaboration
with financial staff and the BFI Board of Directors.
• Make sure that incoming donations, grants, foundation awards, and other funding meet the revenue goals of the annual budget, including adequate cash flow.
• Guide the development of annual financial and development plans to support each year's programmatic goals.
• Take the lead role in ongoing fundraising for the organization, including cultivating, engaging, and stewarding donors and other funding sources at all levels of giving.
• Oversee the planning and execution of outreach and fundraising events.

Operations
• Establish and ensure the necessary administrative and operational systems are in place to support organizational goals.
• Oversee BFI administrative functions, including finances, human resources, facilities, technology, communications, store operations, and program evaluation.
• Support staff responsible for the training and management of volunteers to sustain a vibrant volunteer pool, while ensuring that each volunteer is a good match for the program or project he or she supports.
• Make sure that evaluation and record-keeping processes accurately capture and report all BFI activities, frequency of participation in BFI youth programs, and notable trends, achievements, and problems or issues.
• Ensure that BFI technology and information systems are maintained, monitored, and updated as needed, and that funding is available for the technology required for efficient operations.

Outreach, Brand Development, and Marketing
• Work with staff to develop and implement an annual marketing communications plan to increase the visibility of our work and keep supporters well-informed.
• Oversee all public communications — including emails and letters, social media postings, the web site, newsletters, brochures, and public relations materials — to preserve the unconventional spirit, voice, and messages of BFI. (As a foundation director once said, “Your newsletter is the only one I read start to finish every month.”)

Board Relations
• Report to the board, attend each meeting, and keep the board thoroughly informed of BFI's progress and any obstacles to success.
• Personally engage each board member in BFI's work to build a lasting commitment; enlist his or her support whenever needed to help achieve immediate and long-term goals.
• Collaborate with staff on routine presentations to the board that highlight what, how, and where programs are occurring, as well as their desired outcomes, problem areas, and notable achievements.
• Work with the board to develop a strategic plan, monitor its implementation, and measure progress on an annual basis.
• Help the board identify, recruit, and develop active board members who can support the work of BFI in multiple ways.
• Assign and oversee staff liaisons to board committees so committees have the information and support necessary to fulfill their objectives.

Experience and Qualifications
• Personality: Charismatic, open-minded, articulate, child-friendly, and in possession of an excellent sense of humor.
• Education: Bachelor's degree in education, arts, or other relevant specialty from an accredited college or university. Preferred: Masters degree in education, nonprofit management, or other relevant specialty.
• Nonprofit: Four to six years' experience managing nonprofit youth programs, staff, and operations, with notable experience in education and/or the arts.
• Leadership: Ability to guide, mentor, delegate, listen, problem-solve, and make timely and effective decisions.
• Financial: Experience creating and managing budgets, overseeing financial and fundraising staff, and working with staff and board to sustain financial health.
• Fundraising: Experience as a nonprofit development director and/or demonstrated ability to secure funding from corporations, foundations, and other sources, while inspiring individual donors to give.
• Network: Access to a strong and diverse network of connections throughout Seattle and the Northwest.
• Collaboration: Experience working with many different cultures and constituents, including donors, community organizations, parents, teachers, volunteers, and children.
• Communications and Public Speaking: Outstanding written, oral, and interpersonal communication skills; a public speaking style that can clearly convey the spirit and purpose of BFI while holding the audience's attention.

Compensation
Salary will be commensurate with the applicant’s experience and competitive with nonprofit executive director salaries in the Northwest. The job also includes a stipend for health care, flexible work hours, and a generous vacation policy.

Description

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. We strongly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups.

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 Marketing Coordinator works with the media, coordinates print pieces and emails, contributes to our social media presence, works with partner organizations, and promotes SAL events to engage people of all ages and backgrounds to become or return as ticket-buyers, subscribers, donors, and friends. The Marketing Coordinator reports to the Associate Director and works primarily with the Public Programs team (including the Content Editor and Box Office Manager). The Public Programs team drives the outreach and sales for all ticketed events and the engagement around our free Summer Book Bingo program.

• In possession of strong writing and presentation skills.
• A college graduate (or an equivalent combination of related education and experience).

DAY-TO-DAY RESPONSIBILITIES
Reports to the Executive Director
• Devise a fund development infrastructure that includes internal controls for meeting aggressive annual and long-term fundraising goals.
• Take charge of our new capacity campaign to secure individual and major gifts according to specified timelines.
• Provide support to the Board of Directors through coaching and solicitation resources.

• Manage our donor and grant-tracking databases.
• Develop and manage fundraising communications, including engagement/online/mail appeals, gift processing, and donor acknowledgements.
• Oversee the maintenance of donor-specific content on our website and social media postings.
• Help ensure that all outgoing communication conforms to the BFI style, including our voice and the look and feel of our visual identity.
• Provide Executive Director and board of directors with timely reports and updates, as requested.

LEADERSHIP
• Serve as a member of the BFI leadership team
• Model respectful and positive communication with all staff
• Contribute to board meetings, as needed
• Participate fully in BFI events

COMPENSATION:
Salary will be commensurate with the applicant’s experience and competitive with nonprofit development director salaries in the Northwest. The job also includes health and dental insurance, flexible work hours, and a generous vacation policy.

Description

Flower City Arts Center is seeking original photographic work exploring the idea of a family
photograph. From the daguerreotype of the 1850’s to Kodak’s snapshot craze a hundred years
later to the countless photos currently stored in your iCloud, the history of family photographs is
almost as long and varied as the history of photography itself. Unlike any other medium before
it, photography allows us to capture the exact likeness of our loved ones. And the act of taking
photographs is both an affirmation and denial of death’s inevitability. The tradition of artists who
use photography to explore their family histories, relationships, and identities is as complex and
varied as how one defines a family. For this exhibition, juror Sara Macel (www.saramacel.com)
is interested in seeing photo-based work by artists that explores the ideas of family, memory,
intimacy, or domesticity through the use of contemporary and/or archival photography. Entry
Deadline is September 23, 2018. Best of Show receives $500 award. For more information and
to submit: https://www.rochesterarts.org/family-photographs/

How to Apply

Submissions are accepted online via Submittable. Follow the link on our website to submit your
files and pay the submission fee: www.rochesterarts.org/family-photographs
