Guidelines for Writers

Galleries West welcomes queries from previously published writers or emerging writers with a strong sense of craft and knowledge of the visual arts.

Most of our articles relate to artists with upcoming exhibitions in Western Canada or the North, although we occasionally commission stories on more general themes. We typically publish short-form stories and reviews that range in length from 250 words to 800 words. We seek writing sophisticated enough to engage art professionals, but accessible to a general audience interested in the arts.

Direct queries to editor@gallerieswest.ca, briefly explaining what you want to write, including links to relevant websites, along with a short description of your experience. Please attach PDFs or links to two samples of previous writing.

Writers are expected to inform the editor of any potential conflicts of interest.
