Visual Art Source is an art-focused publishing agency based in Southern California that encompasses a portfolio of online and print publications including Art Scene. Visual Art Source came to an agreement with The Huffington Post in 2010 to cross-post their original material from their sites on The Huffington Post, but the deal broke down in early 2011. The Huffington Post was founded by Arianna Huffington, Kenneth Lerer and Jonah Peretti. The site began as a blog community for liberal elites; over the next five years it increasingly became an online newspaper. All submissions of the EM system will be redirected to Online Manuscript Submission System.
Economic capital is also crucial in the competition between media outlets and the viability of journalism as a profession. Another implication for defining the field of journalism relates to the quality of news; journalistic training and integrity have a role in providing the public with more reliable information. While journalism is never objective, some actors may be better placed to provide more reliable accounts than others.
A decade ago, when I founded this blog, I became a crusader to stop writer exploitation. Clearly, more work remains, because this just keeps happening. One thing HuffPo hasn’t clarified is how quickly it might vanish away the existing motherlode of free content.
The Huffington Post does provide a platform for people from various occupations to garner a more or less direct audience for their respective causes. There are definite benefits to the permeability of journalistic barriers that allow non-professional writers to appear in public. The conditions for entry into the field of journalism and the criteria for gaining increased visibility are defined by, and also define, the dominant vision of journalism. The status of individual journalists is also intimately linked to the amount of visibility attained by the institutions for which they produce content.

I have been blogging with them for the past five years but last month they introduced a new system where you can publish directly. The problem is that these posts can not be searched and the only way to reach them is through the url which you share. Articles should be between 500 and 1000 words and can be about pretty much any topic as long as it’s not offensive – keep it clean and positive.
If you get the yes, you’ll receive an email from Arianna saying they want to publish, then you’ll receive an email from the blogging team with your log in details. You then log in, set up your bio, add your photo, add your post and format it (simple WordPress style formatting where you can add numbering, bold/italicise text) – it’s easy to do. You can also add a photo to be used with the post but it must be one you have permission to share – so not something you’ve just grabbed from the web or Pinterest. As far as I understand photos from free stockshot companies like Unsplash, Death to the Stock Photo etc. are ok. The first time I didn’t hear back – if they don’t want to publish it they won’t reply. This time however, I received a reply within 4 days.
Some people will say ‘screw that’ and not submit work to HuffPo, others will still want to tick that goal of getting published there off of the list. There’s no right or wrong, it’s whatever feels good for you. Journalists are not only engaged in an act of making certain issues or stories more visible, but also compete for visibility to be successful in the field.
I have that book too Tracey but I haven’t read it yet. There’s definitely a need for balance and self-care in life, especially when you’re building a business. I have been wanting to submit to them for awhile, I am definitely going to submit something over the next couple of weeks. I think just going through that process is a huge learning curve and great experience for people who love to write. Learning how to deal with the knock backs, and then keep trying, is a big lesson! Due to the large amount of blogs we receive, we are unable to reply to all submissions.
