Artists Need to Be Writers

Artists Need to Be Promoters
Whether you’re showing your sculpture in a factory or performing your slam poetry in a bar, you need to get the audience to your performance. With years of professional marketing experience, we can help brainstorm ideas to publicize your show, get as much press as possible, and build a promotional package.
Sometimes, Artists Need Jobs
Whether you’re a designer getting ready to launch your career or an actor who needs to pay the rent , you’re going to need a job. We’re happy to help you get started with intern or job searches, and are available for individual appointments to help you improve your portfolio, cover letter, résumé, statement, or presentations.
Students are invited to make an appointment to explore careers, discuss majors, search for internships, review portfolios, cover letters, resumes, and more.
