HOW TO BE FEATURED ON
Are you a member of WNW? Great first step to getting featured on this blog. We're a small yet mighty team so we rely on members to contribute content that will hopefully inspire the greater creative community. The best posts are personal and honest. Humor doesn't hurt either. That said, all ideas are still subject to the approval of our editorial team and we cannot promise that every post will be published.
If you want to get your work in front of the people who should see it, this is the Ultimate Guide to Getting on Free Range. We detail out the types of content we're currently seeking and if you find something that sparks your interest, be sure to click on the button to submit your ideas.
Note: Please do not submit fully written articles. We're looking first for ideas and if yours is selected, we'll work with you to create Free Range magic.
With all the amazing stuff our members have going on, we launched SHIT TO DO, a guide to getting you out of the house. So if you're a WNW Member and you have a launch, signing, screening, party, workshop or let's-just-meet-at-a-bar, click that button below.
Think your profile should be listed in our weekly roundup? If you have kickass work (which you do since you're a WNW member), make sure you're showing it off in the best way possible. We only feature profiles that have the following:
- Six images in your minibook
- Bold background image
- Recently updated status
- Bonus points if you vouch for other members
We're seeking companies who share our values of putting people first. Whether you're five people or five hundred strong, we do in-depth profiles on WNW companies who are willing to share their knowledge with us and are willing to be candid about the ups and downs of running a business. Reach out if you want to have discussions around hiring, work culture, and the creative process. A few past favorites include:
If music could have been an alternative career path (or if its your side gig), we want your mixtapes. Being a guest curator is super simple: pick a theme, select between 8-12 songs, and choose a piece of your work as the lead image. A few past favorites include:
Michael Wong, "Driving Through the 90's"
Nick Walker, "Richard Ricardo Does Rio"
We love hearing about creative communities all over the world. We know many of you are passionate about where you live, so tell us why your city is great: where we should eat, drink, create, and play. A few favorites include:
Paola Saliby, "On Sao Paulo"
Sean O'Brien, "On Minnesota"
Francesca Martorelli, "On London: Through the five Senses"
We're somewhat of TV junkies here at WNW and we're not beneath a little fandom. If you're currently nerding out over a particular show and want to share the love, we want to hear about it. Reviews, illustrations, and haikus are all accepted. A few past favorites include:
Christine Gignac's recap of Mad Men's Season 6: Episode 1
Sam Taylor on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
James Wignall on Black Mirror
Write on a subject that you have personal experience with that you think will resonate with the WNW community. Not a wordsmith? Email us a few topics you're interested in and we'll work together to craft an article around it. We also accept illustrations :)
A few past favorites include:
Greg Collins, "How to Leverage the Shit Out of Working Not Working"
Kate Proulx, "On Money"
Jillian Adel, "On Vulnerability"
Zipeng Zhu, "On Starting Over"
Going to any conferences this year? Want to write about it? We're interested in conference recaps, particularly about art, design, technology, and creativity in general. For reference, check out a recent writeup we did about Design Vaca.
We're constantly putting together panels either for Working Not Working or on behalf of our partners. Whether you're already a seasoned presenter or aspire to be one, we want to hear from you. Let us know what you're passionate about and we'll let you know if there's an opportunity available. (Curating your own event and want WNW to speak? We want to hear from you too.)
