A Starting Point For Finding News

Hello all,

I created the following list about a year ago. As a measure of how fast technology grows, it is now totally out of date. There’s so much more out there than there was one year ago!  That said, this list is still a good starting point.  Together, let’s curate a new list by the end of the term, full of all the sites you’re set to discover on your own.

Best,

Ilana

To be a great artist is also to be an informed citizen of the world. One way to do this is to keep up on what’s going on locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally in the realm of theatre, the arts, and culture. Here are some online publications that I check regularly. One helpful way I’ve found to keep track of sites like these is to create a “Daily Reads” folder on my browser’s bookmark bar. It keeps useful sites close at hand, and helps me remember to check them every morning.

Tip #1: some sites ask you to register — for free — but if you (like me) resist giving out your email address to commercial entities if you can at all help it, you can get anonymous log-in for almost any site at BugMeNot.com.

Tip #2: How do you find blogs you might like? Once you find one blog you enjoy, check out that person’s blogroll and click through to the sites they like. It’s a good way to build your network outwards.
