What We Are Interested In

Art is a beautiful, insane, wonderful, creative ride that takes one to unexpected places and into brilliant new worlds.  BUT, making a living as an artist is a whole other ballgame.  Very few people write out the beginnings of Harry Potter on a cafe napkin and explode to world wide super stardom.  Most of us have to start small, with a few local friends and family trying to help springboard us to something else.

That was the framework of Keep The Greasy Side Down; to create a community of independent artists – people without official representation – looking to build their fan base, extend their reach, and increase their exposure.  So far, obviously the focus has been musicians and local bands, but there is A LOT MORE going on in Arizona that is waiting to be discovered!

We are interested in well written reviews, interviews, expositions, or photo expose’s that cover Arizona (or adjoined Native Nations):

  • Musicians
  • Painters
  • Photographers
  • Writers
  • Jewelers
  • Artisans/ Crafters

Ethics / Community Standards

So far, we have tried to maintain a PG-13/ 16 rating.  There are curse words in some of the articles, but they are not pervasive, and they are fitting, if you will, to the topic.

Keep The Greasy Side Down is a multi-cultural publication. This is not the medium for hate, hate speech, indoctrination, or religious exploitation.  This is a community of artists, free thinkers, and creative people looking to explore their worlds and share their wonders with other people.

No submissions that glorify division, disunity, or disharmony will be accepted.  There is a difference of being critical about society, or the world in general, and critical of a people or a culture.

Please be respectful and appropriate to the PG-13 audience.
