Our Writer’s Guidelines accepts submissions from experienced and accomplished writers, as well as new writers wanting to break in. We are a new concept, having recently been granted three U.S. Government patents on our technology and system, and we are the first and only permanent registry of its kind for artists and collectors. We welcome practical articles of interest to serious visual artists, emerging or professional, as well as collectors. Examples of what we publish: investigative, marketing how-tos, first-person stories on how an artist has built his career or an aspect of it, interviews with artists (business/career-building emphasis), and articles on business practices and other topics of use to artists and collectors.

Before writing for us, please familiarize yourself with the types of stories and general interest articles publishes. If you feel your submission would suit our editorial interests, please consider the following:

  • Preference is given to fresh, edgy, maybe even irreverent new ideas and investigations on the visual arts and collectibles, as well as related topics. Tell us a story we haven’t heard from the visual art and collectible markets, especially as it might relate to
  • Since we are a national and international online service, we publish articles that appeal to readers from the U.S. and abroad and everywhere in between. Stories dependent upon local references and/or characters are not suitable for, although exceptions are made from time to time.
  • Attention to detail should be paid to your manuscript submissions. Please query first. Unsolicited submissions are accepted, but will not be returned.
  • We will publish stories that have been published in other publications so long as the author currently holds the rights to the story.
  • Most important of all, know the mission and what we stand for. A shot at writing for us on a regular basis hinges on how well you know our audience and what we offer our members.
