Producing a strong photographic body of work is a tremendous accomplishment, but without good writing and editing skills, photographers may face difficulty connecting with galleries, curators, critics, or even their own website visitors. In this two-day workshop, participants will learn how to enhance their professional practice through writing. Not your typical “how to” writing workshop, this class will focus on the many instances in which photographers are asked to write about their work including press statements, interviews, newsletter content, and artist biographies.
This workshop will help participants hone their writing skills and leave with a broader understanding of the contemporary photography market.
Lunch is included for both days, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available for $75 per night.
