Falling Through the Cracks, Part 2
July 29, 2010
Mark Shenton, a commentator for the British entertainment publication The Stage, picked up my blog post of July 22 ("Falling Through the Cracks") about the ways in which arts journalists are having to eke out their living in an increasingly unstable media environment -- and ran with it.
His intelligently-written piece covers such ground as the difficulties that PR people face trying to weed out the legitimate arts writers from the opportunists in the blogging world and the impact of the increasingly non-remunerated nature of the critic's job on the Edinburgh Festival.
Mr. Shenton's piece is available here. Food for thought.
