Grant—Writing Workshop

Writing Workshop

The Art Writing Workshop was a program offered by the Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant in collaboration with AICA-USA between 2009 and 2020. In its twelve years, 120 emerging arts writers participated in the workshop. 

The program was founded by the critic and founding member of AICA-USA, Amei Wallach, and the founding director of the Arts Writers Grant, Margaret Sundell. The Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant is deeply grateful to Amei Wallach for the enthusiasm and deep care with which she built and directed the program for eleven years, inviting leading critics to help nurture the careers of over a hundred emerging art writers.

Each year ten writers were selected to work with a mentor over the course of a six-month period, during which they would engage in ongoing conversations focused on improving specific pieces of writing, some of which have been published on AICA’s online magazine. Under the direction of Jennifer Kabat, the program expanded to include additional workshops on style and voice, on strengthening critical argument, and on pitching and writing for publications.
