Arts Writing Workshops

Explore a wide range of critical, creative and practical approaches to writing about art and developing new skills using writing, from artists’ statements and arts journalism to developing art-works that incorporate text. Join Wayne Burrows and a mixed group of artists and writers who share your interests for what will hopefully become a regular peer-to-peer support group and network in the city.

The Arts Writing Workshop is hosted by BACKLIT Gallery and supported by the Arts Council and the City of Literature. There are initially 4 workshops at different visual arts venues (all in Nottingham) led by Wayne Burrows, with new guest speakers and perspectives introduced each time. The intention is to build a mixed group of writers, performers and artists interested in supporting each-others’ practices while developing skills in these areas.

All sessions are freestanding, you are welcome to attend at any stage. Please book via above link. For further details please contact
