OLY ARTS, the South Sound’s premier multi-platform arts and culture publication, is dedicated to coverage of the amazing theater, arts and culture our communities create. Our arts and culture coverage reaches up to 30,000 readers each month in Thurston, Pierce, South King, Mason and Lewis counties.

Few cities in the nation – even fewer in the Pacific Northwest – enjoy the diversity of theater, arts and creative expression we are so privileged to experience right here at home.

We accept guest articles from freelance contributors with knowledge of the South Sound arts and cultural scene. We are specifically looking for writers who specialize in theatre, music, visual arts, film, food, events or local culture.

Community contributors are paid a flat fee per article, not per-word or by pageviews. We believe in building a culture wherein artists and writers are paid fairly for their work. Community contributors must be 18 or older.
