Introducing the Spring 2013 Blogging Fellows

James Carter, Anna Prushinskaya, and Erinn Roos-Brown join ArtsFwd as our newest cohort of Blogging Fellows.


I’m very pleased to introduce three new forward thinkers (FwdThinkers!) to the ArtsFwd team as our spring cohort of Blogging Fellows: James Carter, Anna Prushinskaya, and Erinn Roos-Brown. Welcome!

About the Blogging Fellowship

For this season of the Blogging Fellowship, we’re experimenting with a new format.

Fellows will shift to a publishing schedule that focuses more on spearheading the dialogue around our ArtsFwd content. They’ll do this by writing provocative comments and questions on others’ posts and contributing one original op-ed post per month that will engage our readership and introduce new perspectives.

Behind the scenes, Fellows will regularly collaborate in an online forum to bounce around ideas, share stories, and provide feedback on each others’ work. Stay tuned to learn more about how you can connect with this cohort of Blogging Fellows!
