We want to help you publicize your show. Help us to help you by (1) keeping your answers short and sweet; (2) checking your spelling and punctuation, then check them again, (3) coordinate properly with the rest of the company so we don’t receive multiple interviews from the same production, (4) and finally…
**DON’T COPY AND PASTE YOUR ANSWERS FROM YOUR PRESS RELEASE!!!**
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
- Complete the form below.
- Click submit.
- (That’s it.)
- This is a verbatim interview which will appear EXACTLY as you write it. Use the tone you would when talking to a potential ticket buyer, not a potential reviewer!
- Did we mention spelling and grammar yet?
- When asked, please provide the link to your listing on tickets.edfringe.com (not your venue’s website).
- Agents! If you are submitting an interview on behalf of a client YOU are responsible for ensuring that it meets these criteria for submission especially in terms of length, what to say, and how to say it.
- To get a sense of what to say and how to say it try reading a couple of past interviews here.
- We’ll include a description of your show (taken from the listing) in the introduction to the piece, so don’t feel the need to repeat what’s in there in your answers.
- This is an unfiltered opportunity for you to talk about your show. Be passionate. Don’t assume readers know what you know.
- Question 4 says a lot about you and how passionate you are. Talk about your recommendations. Try to give more than a list. #EdFringe is about artists coming together to learn from and support one another. Use this opportunity to talk about the kind of art that inspires you.
- As with all the reviews & coverage you receive over the Fringe, don’t forget you can retweet the link to older content at any time.
WHAT WE WILL THEN DO
Once we have received your answers we will publish our interview with you on the +3 section of our website. You will know the interview is live when we tweet a link to the interview via our account @EdinFortyNine.
We hope to process interviews within 3 days (but we don’t promise). We will try not to publish more than 6 interviews a day. Interviews will be published on a first in, first out basis.
WHY IS THIS CALLED A +3 INTERVIEW?
Edinburgh49 was established to cover the arts scene in Scotland’s capital outside the Fringe. 52 weeks of the year minus 3 weeks of the Fringe = Edinburgh49. In 2015 we expanded our respected coverage to include the best and brightest from the August festivals. Our Edinburgh49 +3 content is edited by former Edinburgh Fringe Festival Society media officer Jacob Close.
