About SOA

Speaking On Art aims to be a resource of sorts, written by those with varying backgrounds–whether in art or other–offering a personal perspective on the visual arts.

Speaking On Art seeks those with interest in art to share their thoughts and opinions on any aspect of the visual arts that is important to you at the moment. Artist’s, introduce and talk about your art, in general or a specific piece, and discuss your personal working methods. Philosophers, historians, collectors, laymen–anyone is welcome to submit an article.

Submissions must be of original material that is clearly creditable to the author on the submitting site. SOA maintains the right to refuse any article deemed as inappropriate, subversive or that appears as spam. Multiple submissions welcome.

FAQ

What is Speaking On Art?
A collection of post excerpts submitted by individual authors. SOA publishes the excerpts (which link to each bloggers site where the entire post can be read) in a post on The Painter’s Tongue. A new issue of SOA is published as new posts are submitted.

Why should I submit to SOA?
Submitting articles from your blog can increase traffic, and therefore readers, to your site.

How often is this carnival published?
Speaking on Art is published on an ongoing basis as submissions are received.

Does my post have to be new?
The post doesn’t have to be one you’ve never published but it should be new to the carnival.

What if I miss the deadline?
There is no deadline for submitting.

How are submissions approved? Is this a competition?
This is not in any way a competition. Submissions are approved based on relevance to the carnival’s description. Opinion based articles are welcome. Artist’s, especially, are encouraged to submit articles about their work in general, or, about a piece specifically. Submissions from sites whose sole purpose is to link to other sites, and sites that use their blog to sell unrelated commercial items, are not accepted.

How often and how many posts can I submit?
As often and as many as you like. Normally, one post per person is included in each carnival issue.
