Become a Contributing Author


Contributors are people who write articles for RUSSIAN ART + CULTURE. Anyone can apply to be a contributor as long as you are keen to write about Russian art and culture. As a contributor you can write as much and as frequently as you wish.

We publish posts daily and writing for the website provides the opportunity to gain bylines. This website gives academics, curators, critics, and graduate students the chance to publish their reviews, articles as well as to promote any upcoming events of interest to the UK community interested in Russian art and culture.

Being a contributor gives you an opportunity to gain journalism experience and build up your CV, have your thoughts and opinions read by thousands of people, join our network of academics, curators, journalists, and graduate students working in related fields.

Reviews should in English, 400-500 words long, and articles anything up to 1000 words. All contributors are volunteers, who receive a byline for the articles published. We can also help you arrange a press pass to the events you want to review.

If you are interested in becoming a contributor, please send your texts and cover letter to Elena Shampanova, Editor at
