The arts magazine Bourgeon and non-profit news site The DC Line are partnering to commission a series of first person essays from professional DC area artists to document how coronavirus and quarantine are impacting creative life and process.
Essays are expected to detail the artist’s creative process, and how it has been impacted by the virus. Artists commissioned may be painters, sculptors, poets, dancers, actors, choreographers, playwrights, filmmakers, photographers, etc.
An honorarium of $75-$150 per 600-1000 word essay is available and selected artists are being commissioned by series editors Diane Charnov, Lee Halvorsen, and Phil Davis, with Chris Kain (The DC Line) and Robert Bettmann (Day Eight/Bourgeon.)
Interested artists are asked to provide a statement of interest by email to Robert <at> DayEight.org.
