I was impressed by this open letter to the media by Jessica Ruano, who runs the Ottawa Arts Newsletter.
Dear Arts Editors,
Have we done something wrong?
Weâ€™ve been sending you press releases full of witticisms and high definition photos, and then following up with bubbly phone calls letting you know why our productions are important and why your readers would enjoy them. We work hard to formulate selling points for every production within the season. Sometimes we even risk artistic integrity by marketing our productions in a way that would appeal to a wide variety of people because we know how important that is.
We try really, really hard – and yet we feel you are completely ignoring us.
