The American Theatre Critics Association’s Conference & Event committee invites you to this open discussion about engaging and sustaining online readers. Tuesday, May 25, 2021 starting at 8 pm EDT / 5 pm PT.
In an age where success is often measured in page views, arts stories often struggle to find an audience of online readers. Our panelists will discuss ways to engage and sustain readers with smart writing designed for a saturated 21st century media landscape that you can adopt into your own work.
Sarasota Herald-Tribune Arts Editor and Theater Critic Jay Handelman moderates this panel with Rob Weinert-Kendt, American Theatre magazine editor; Christopher Wynn, Dallas Morning News Arts & Entertainment Editor; Sarah Pineda, Engagement Producer for KQED (San Francisco); Ashley Lee, who covers theater, movies and television for the Los Angeles Times; and Liz Johnson, features editor for 20 sites in the USA Today Network’s Atlantic Group, including New Jersey’s The Record and The Asbury Park Press, and New York’s Westchester The Journal News and Rochester Democrat & Chronicle.
This is the third in a series of ATCA events designed to be both for critics and by critics. Featuring ATCA members as panelists and moderators, these events are free, informal and geared toward working arts writers.
OPEN TO MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS
