My friend and writer Katey Schultz who I've mentioned on my blog before (remember the swinging bridges and Lost Crossings?) offers great writing services to artists. Katey has written articles for numerous magazines, is a press manager for our local Spruce Pine Potters Market, and writes artist content for several artists. Her "Writer at Large" services for artists are about working with an individual artist or group to represent them and their work in a professional, exciting, creatively honest way. This content doesn't need to be something for a magazine. If you need help writing about your work, she can help with web content, artist statements, resumes, biographies, press releases and more. She also is happy to revise existing drafts you may already have.
I plan to have Katey help me revise some of my content. Writing clearly about your work is so important for an artist and I think sometimes it helps to get a different perspective from someone else. I highly recommend Katey for this and always enjoy reading anything she writes.
Katey recently did all the written website content for glass artists Thor and Jennifer Bueno. She doesn't design the website, but certainly can help with the words
on the page to make your site look and sound professional. Check out their beautiful site here: http://www.buenoglass.com/
Katey has been writing about art for six years
and has published essays on over 50 artists in the United States and Europe. Her essays have appeared in: Ceramics Monthly, Ceramic Art & Perception,
Surface Design Journal, Contemporary Impressions, Metalsmith, and more. She has
an MFA in Nonfiction from Pacific University and more than 10 years experience
as an editor for 4 different literary magazines. Artists she has written about
include: Cristina Cordova, Lisa Clague, Kenneth Baskin, Terry Gess, Elizabeth
Brim, Lisa Klakulak, Anne Lemanski, Jenny Mendes, Emily Reason, Matt Kelleher,
Shoko Teruyama, and more.

Don't miss the spring issue of American Craft magazine. They featured my work in an article on the EnergyXChange where my studio is. The whole issue is on sustainability. Here's a link to the article: www.craftcouncil.org/magazine/article/fueled
