Interested in writing about what you love and working with other artisan writers? Submit an application to be a columnist or editor on! Handmade News is the next generation of Art Daily, an entirely handmade and art oriented news blog. While isn’t quite ready to go live yet, we are currently accepting and reviewing applications for positions on the site. These are paying positions; we’re looking for artisans willing to devote their time to the news blog to make it great! See the Sponsored By section on the right hand side of the page? Once Handmade News is launched, we plan to fill up these spots with paid advertisements. All Handmade News Columnists and Editors will receive a portion of the advertising revenue gained from their category or column. How quickly these ad spots fill up depends on the amount of traffic coming into a particular section of the site, so the more popular our editors’ and columnists’ posts are, the more advertising revenue they can gain from Handmade News. In addition, all editors and columnist receive a FREE verified ArtFire account for however long they choose to hold the post!

If you’re interested in joining our Handmade News team, please click here for more information on the positions and to submit an application. We’re looking for 40 columnists and an editor for each department, so tell your friends to submit an application too!
