Writers Guidelines:

We prefer proposals to completed articles. For features, the proposal should be 125-250 words; for columns and reviews, 50 words is plenty. Tell us what and who you want to discuss, and what you plan to say. Please include two brief writing samples (1,000-2,000 words), together with a short bio (40 words) describing your background and interests. We evaluate proposals based on quality, appropriateness and available space, and strive to notify writers of a decision within a week. Proposals may be submitted by email to ed@proximitymagazine(dot)com. We will not consider queries not accompanied by writing samples. It may take 2-6 weeks to receive a response.

If we accept your proposal, we will negotiate a mutually acceptable length, deadline and compensation. To date we are unable to pay our writers. We reserve the right to terminate our acceptance of your proposal if we discover you have misrepresented yourself, or if the final form of the article diverges markedly from the agreed-upon topic, format or deadline.

TYPES OF ARTICLES
Features or Interviews range from 1200 to 3500 words, and express fully developed viewpoints about a particular subject. We expect our writers to develop and support their theses rigorously, and to have a sophisticated understanding of any philosophies, histories or theoretical concepts they invoke.

Reviews cover solo and group shows of regional, national or international significance. We are especially interested in regionally significant artists who have not yet reached a regional, national or international audience. Reviews are 200-400 words when covering the work of a single artist and 250-500 words when discussing the work of more than one artist. Please read an issue of the magazine (located on this website) to see if your work fits within the parameter and interests of the publication.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST
a) The editors will not consider submissions in which a writer: writes about the work, project or gallery of someone with whom the writer has a financial relationship, any gallery that represents his/her work, any relative, any work, project or gallery institutionally related to the organization employing the writer or a colleague in the institution employing the writer.
b) The editors will not consider submissions by a writer whom the gallery, collective or artist has paid or commissioned to write the article in question. Suggestions from groups are permitted but the editors make the final decision.
c) The editors will not consider a submission by a writer who collects the work of the artist in question.
d) The editors shall decide whether to cover exhibitions curated by, featuring or including the work of any writer for Proximity.
