Call for participants: developing critical writing on the contemporary visual arts
After the success of last year’s programme, Axisweb are running another year of writing workshops and publication support. We are seeking three emerging writers based in Wales who are interested in developing their critical writing on the contemporary visual arts.
Who is it for?
You should be interested in writing about creative practice in Wales, but also eager to respond to wider UK and international developments in the visual arts. Writers must be based in Wales. Welsh language writers are welcome, although all texts must also be produced in English.
Writers will participate in three writing workshops with established critics JJ Charlesworth, Cherry Smyth and Chris Sharratt running between February – July 2013.
Additionally, writers will receive feedback on work proposed for publication from these critics and have an opportunity to submit work on spec (i.e. if quality is commensurate) to Axis and partnering publications.
If work is accepted, writers will be paid for their submission. Travel expenses to and from workshops are covered. Workshops will be delivered in English.
