Join Art Presence as an Author!
Jacksonville happens to be home to many accomplished writers and authors. To provide a local outlet for their work and help them promote their books, Art Presence Art Center set up an Author’s Corner where local authors offer their books. After several years of success for authors, the Author’s Corner has settled into a permanent and beloved feature of the gallery.
Our new program, Talk of the Town, features author readings and other creatives. We are also in the process of organizing a new ekphrastic writing program.
The authors we represent are not gallery members, but consignees. Thus, there is no annual fee to join. We invite all local authors to share their writing with us. Art Presence simply takes a very small commission of the sales of your books.
Please send a message through our contact page or email Paula Bandy directly at email@example.com for more information and to join us as an author.
