Grant—Writing Workshop

Writing Workshop

The Art Writing Workshop, which began in 2009, was established by the critic and founding member of AICA-USA Amei Wallach and the founding director of the Arts Writers Grant, Margaret Sundell. In its twelve years, 120 emerging arts writers have participated in the workshop.

Each year ten writers are selected to work with a mentor over the course of a six-month period, from January to June. The workshop participants explore conversations, ideas, thinking, writing, style, and voice that make for strong criticism. Programming for this year’s workshop, under the direction of Jennifer Kabat, includes additional workshops on style and voice, on strengthening critical argument, and on publishing in today’s shifting media landscape, and will end in June 2021.

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. She invited leading critics and helped nurture the careers of over a hundred emerging art writers.

The Art Writing Workshop will not be offered on the 2021 grant application.
