CQ UNBOUND—our online publishing wing:
Editorial material welcomed year round about dancing, performance, dancemaking, teaching, and improvisation. We review material and post articles year round on our website, so please send material whenever it's ready.
See Submission Guide below.
Help us broaden our outreach for CQ material: CURATE an article. Document the work of teachers, colleagues, students, and collaborators whose work excites, challenges, informs, and/or inspires you. Record WHATS HAPPENING around you in the field of dance, improvisation, and performance. Interview someone; take notes at a workshop; review a performance; write short snapshots/portraits of people, events, situations. Call or email us for encouragement, suggestions, specifications, and other details.
Not up for making an article but have something to say? Write a LETTER. We love getting mail from you and review all of our mail for possible publication. If you dont want your correspondence printed, please let us know.
