WomenArts: Get Ready for SWAN Day 10: Post Your Events or Write for Us!

Celebrate SWAN Day 2017!
Dear Women in the Arts & Media Coalit,
It is hard to believe, but March 25, 2017 will be the 10th Anniversary of Support Women Artists Now Day/SWAN Day!
The international holiday we declared back in 2008 has now been celebrated with over 1,500 events across the U.S. and in 35 other countries. We have big plans for SWAN Day 10, and we hope you will join us by posting your events on the SWAN Calendar, writing for our blog, or making a gift.
Post Your Events on the SWAN Calendar!
We invite you to create events celebrating women artists and post them on our SWAN Calendar. If you want us to write about your event in a blog post or newsletter, posting it on the SWAN Calendar is the best way to send us the information.
Please feel free to post events in any art form - just be sure that they feature women artists in key creative roles. You can add events by filling in our online form or by sending us a link to your Facebook event page. If you need help, check out our Step-By-Step Guide to Posting Your SWAN Event.
As part of our celebration of SWAN Day 10, we want to feature new voices in the WomenArts Blog. We are especially interested in writers who can provide diverse perspectives in terms of race, class, religion, age, sexual preference, gender identity, disability or other characteristics. We will pay for every article we publish that has not been published elsewhere.
We are currently looking for articles of 500 - 1,000 words that fit into one of the following three categories:
Inspiring Women – Articles about extraordinary/inspiring women artists, women artists overcoming obstacles, or festivals of women artists.
Gender Parity Research & Actions – Articles summarizing research studies, legal actions, demonstrations or other activities related to the struggle for gender parity in any art form.
Helpful Resources – Articles with tips for women artists on publicity, fundraising, crowd-sourcing, job-hunting or other business aspects of their work; articles about helpful directories, websites or other resources.
