Arts Writers Grant Program – Writing Workshop Recipients Announced

Oh my gosh, I’m so excited to get to announce my selection in this year’s Arts Writers Grant Program Writing Workshop, organized in conjunction with AICA/USA.

The Art Writing Workshop—a partnership between the Arts Writers Grant Program and the International Art Critics Association/USA Section (AICA/USA)—gives practicing writers the opportunity to strengthen their work through one-on-one email and phone consultations with leading art critics. Focusing on the craft of writing, the workshop will use participants’ writing samples as a springboard for an in-depth consideration of such issues as voice, prose style, organizational structure, and argumentation. Ten applicants are chosen to participate each year.

Each selected writer is paired with a senior AICA critic who serves as the workshop leader. Working over the internet and by phone, the workshop leader communicates with the writer: defining goals, evaluating current writing projects, and making substantial suggestions for developing content, argument, and a compelling voice.
