Contact culture editor Erica Ciccarone (

Our culture coverage includes theater, dance, comedy, books* and general features about cultural events and trends. Preference for Middle Tennessee writers, although out-of-area writers are sometimes considered. Pitch should be no more than 150 words and include possible sources, if applicable.

*We receive most of our books coverage through a partnership with Humanities Tennessee, including reviews. However, if you have a connection to or a pitch about a local author or bookish initiative, we may assign a feature or Q&A.
