Submitting for creative and professional opportunities can feel a bit onerous. But with some guidance and a clear, strategic plan at the ready, the process can be easy and streamlined—and the rewards can pay off big-time! This ninety-minute workshop focuses on strategies and tactics for practicing artists to increase professional activity and visibility. We will look at the best methods for documenting and editing bodies of work, preparing multiple portfolios and supplemental materials, maximizing web and social media presence, as well as researching, prioritizing, budgeting for, and applying to relevant opportunities.
