Whooo-weee, I think I just rewrote the entire listing! OK, so it just seems that way, as there’s a long list of new additions this month, including a *job!* Read on.
***new additions – Feb 26th***
Oh, and I wanted to give this some sizzle – I think it’s a great idea. As of February 1st, 2015, jewelryunder30.com, an online platform to encourage young makers to write and hone their unique voice, has been live. Check it!
NB. I’ve removed the Teaching Positions from the end of this listing as I’ve heard that many of them have been filled. I realise the Kent State on doesn’t say it’s closing til the 26th of Feb, so if you want it head back to my last deadlines post and you can see it there. (Rumour has it that interviews are/have been in progress.)
Other places to find yourself some deadly deadline action:
