Write for an Online Arts Magazine

Do you want to write about Movies, TV, Arts, Anime, Comics, Games, Literature or other art forms? Do you want to get your foot in the door and enter the big-wide world of the online media and have your work read and shared by millions of readers? We invite you to The Artifice:

The Artifice is an online magazine that covers a wide spectrum of art forms. The Artifice is collaboratively built and maintained by fellow writers. It is structured to let you focus on the quality of the content while it deals with the exposure of it to an audience of millions.

The Artifice does not work quite the same as other publishing platforms. For example, the first question you may ask is "What are you looking for?" At The Artifice, your fellow writers ask you instead: "What are you an expert on? What are you passionate about?"

You can write about a whole host of things for pleasure, passion and/or to boost your CV with vital experience in this ever competitive media environment.

Our current writers range from undergraduates, to graduates, to emeritus professors.

Vocal Ensemble for Senior Citizens Group

We are seeking a small student vocal ensemble to volunteer to provide a 30-45 minute performance and discussion for the "Joy in Learning" senior group on Wednesday, December 11, 12:30-1:15 pm. Vocal pieces could include holiday, seasonal, and peace-related as our group is diverse in secular and spiritual backgrounds.

Minneapolis Public Schools' Community Education program in the Prospect Park neighborhood has a program of 12-20 seniors who meet monthly for a luncheon and guest presentation. The "Joy in Learning" group is co-sponsored by Pratt Community Education and the Southeast Seniors Block Nurse program.

The presentation could be a mix of performance and discussion by the students of: why did they decide to major in music at the U, what brought them to the University of Minnesota, what are their career hopes, what are the broader issues they see in support of the arts in our current day culture, and any other pertinent issues? The presentation could be an exchange with the seniors' questions as well as comments.

Some in the group are retired U of M professors. Many in the group are U of M alumni. And some are also musicians. We are seeking not just a performance but also an enriching discussion for the students to share some current day insights of studying music at the U of M.

We are located at 66 Malcolm Ave. SE, but meet at Prospect Park United Methodist Church, 22 Orlin Ave. SE, right across the street from Pratt School.

The Good News Big Band is looking for a tenor sax player. Flute and clarinet doubling ability is a plus but NOT a deal breaker.

The band has played at hundreds of churches over the years throughout the state of Minnesota. In addition to augmenting church services, the band plays park concerts, Christmas concerts, fund raisers, jazz festivals, and has recorded live at the Artist's Quarter in St. Paul.

The band rehearses every Sunday night at the Oak Hill Lutheran Church in Bloomington, MN , from 7-9 PM, from September thru June.

If you have or know someone who would enjoy playing in a well-run, seasoned big band with an extensive library, please have them contact me at the below e-mail address.
