This has been sent out by the nice folks over at Articulate:
The ABC’s arts weblog Articulate (http://blogs.abc.net.au/articulate) is calling for pitches for a new opinion section, the Soapbox.
Starting soon, every Monday there will be a 200-word opinion piece by an Articulate reader, discussing some aspect of the arts.
It could be topical (eg, Australian take on the US writers strike, the PM’s new literary award) or something much more personal (eg, why you love/hate romantic comedies, or how you hate it when people say ‘I don’t read sf/horror/fantasy/romance/whatever’).
The idea is to engender debate on the Australian arts scene — be it books, music, theatre, or visual art.
Please send your one-sentence pitches to Gary Kemble, via: http://blogs.abc.net.au/articulate/contact-us.html
