The Italian Art Society’s IASblog publishes short articles on all aspects of Italian art and architecture from prehistory to the present. We seek applications for staff writers to contribute regular features for IASblog including, but not limited to, historical notes tied to anniversary dates of births, deaths, or other significant events related to Italian artists, architects, designers, and patrons, as well as historians and critics of Italian art. Notes on current exhibitions, new publications, and news items relevant to the study and conservation of Italian art and architecture are also welcome.
Staff writers will create new content and/or revise existing content, averaging five to seven short posts per month (250-1,000 words). Staff writers are encouraged to pitch ideas for blog posts outside of their assigned articles. All new content will include author byline with hyperlink to a personal or professional website, and each staff writer will have a short bio posted on the blog’s “About” page. The position of staff writer does not carry additional compensation.
Visit IASblog for more information. To apply, please submit a letter of interest, cv, and a short writing sample to IASblog editor Anne Leader at firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 June 2015. Review of applications ongoing; successful candidates will be asked to join the Italian Art Society and will begin contributing to IASblog upon appointment.
