About Sources of Publicity
Since 2003, Theatre Bay Area has been producing Sources of Publicity, a resource guide for Bay Area performing arts organizations and producers to reach media outlets. It brings together an introduction to best practices and etiquette to work with journalists, plus hundreds of press contacts and outlets that cover the performing arts. This will be our first edition since 2019, and so much has changed since then! In addition to traditional media outlets, we're adding more guidance and contacts to help performing arts organizations engage with non-traditional and new media creators.
