Call for Critics!
We will work closely with our critics to cultivate a HowlRound voice that engages the work on stage through positive inquiry asking: Why this play, playwright, or story now? This criticism will not be aimed at ticket sales. In fact it’s unlikely that articles will be published during the run of the show—our hope is to deepen conversation around the work and emphasize its importance above and beyond the market value of the ticket. This is a call for HowlRound NewCrit Critics. HNCC’s reside in the city where they review. They love theatre and are committed to its ongoing vitality. They commit to writing one or two articles for HowlRound each month and are paid $100 for each contribution. They agree to work closely with the HowlRound editorial staff and embrace the values of the journal with an emphasis on positive inquiry and rigorous thinking. If you live in one of the six cities listed and are interested in applying please send the following:
- A 500-750 word statement that reflects your views on theatre criticism and your interest in the position.
- A Resume.
- A published writing sample that demonstrates your ability to think critically about theatre.
