Come join us: Creative Tourist, The Double Negative, Corridor8

Susie Stubbs

Want to write for some of the North West’s finest art mags (online and off)? Join us in Liverpool for a big, fat contributors’ meeting.

We’ve long been of the mind that there’s strength in numbers. That having friends – rather than competitors – makes for more fruitful working than not. So when, over a cup of tea at their office in Liverpool, Mike and Laura of ace Liverpool art site The Double Negative suggested we start running joint contributors meetings, it made perfect sense. And that’s precisely what we’re going to do.

Our first such meeting is in Liverpool on Wednesday 7 August, 6pm-8pm. It is informal and it’s open to all, whether you already write for us or are just thinking about it. It’s at Static Gallery. There is a pay bar – there’s rumour that Mike and Laura will be manning it (I may help out too). Plus there’s a chance to find out more about Creative Tourist, The Double Negative and Corridor8, the kinds of things we do and don’t publish (we’re all quite different publications), and an opportunity to talk to us about any ideas you have. You’ll also get to network with like-minded writers and contributors, which is something that we all, as writers, bloggers and photographers, appreciate now and again.

We’ll be running these sorts of joint shindigs every six months, alternating between Liverpool and Manchester. We also run an open office once a month if you ever fancy dropping in for a cup of tea and a chat – email if you’d like to become a CT contributor and can’t make it to Liverpool next month. See you soon, yes?
