Let's get right to it. First, we are one week away from our first-ever webinar (say that five times fast). This is an interactive dive into the job of the arts critic. What are the elements of a good review? How do we write it? How do we access the shows we cover? What happens when somebody doesn't like our review? Find out with Intro to review-writing: A webinar with the editors at BSR. We're excited to see this one filling up with local writers and our supporters, along with our December 13 webinar about PR for artists. Meanwhile, don't miss our latest BSR Behind the Scenes editorial, all about critics.
Next up, we've got a giveaway: four sets of two tickets to the December 1, 2023 Beatles vs Stones: A Musical Showdown concert at Glenside's Keswick Theatre. All Friends of BSR are eligible for a special drawing for these free tix! Not a Friend? Donate to BSR today (Friends start at $5/month or a one-time gift of $60) and get in on this, all while supporting BSR! Our Friends get access to giveaways and special events throughout the year.
Here's another update for our community: did you know you can advertise with BSR? We have affordable packages for anyone connected with our cultural scene (like local artists or institutions, small businesses or restaurants) who wants to get in front of BSR readers. This is another way we keep BSR running, so keep this opportunity in mind for your networks.
And last but not least, this week's stories! However you observe Thanksgiving (or not), we hope you enjoy the weekend, and take a break from your email--after you read our latest pieces.
