What are the benefits of membership? First, in a time of enormous change in the profession, you'll be part of a national organization advocating for us all, and for best practices in arts journalism. Second, in the coming months we will be announcing a series of partnerships and programs to support arts journalism, including a new virtual network, fellowships, arts journalism awards, conferences and research. To be eligible to participate, you must be a member. While we get up and running again, there is no fee for membership. To apply for membership, please send an email to: najpmembership@najp.org. To apply, we need five clips of recent work, a resume, and a statement about your work as an arts journalist and why you want to join.
