Artist Writing

Workshops for artists & art writers

with Abigail Levine

Wednesdays, May 1, 8, 15, 22 || 7-9:30 pm EST
On Zoom


These workshops will give you tools and techniques for developing writing to use both in your creative work and to talk about it.

  • We’ll develop language that feels both authentic and strategic, building comfort and confidence in writing more generally.

  • We’ll write, review examples of artist statements, and get feedback from the other artist-participants.

  • You’ll leave the workshop with writing about yourself as an artist and your current projects, as well as some easy practices to continue build this part of your work and career.

  • We’ll work from techniques you use already in your creative work—embodied exercises and formal constraints—that get you out of your head and connect to language through your body.

  • These workshops are designed for practicing artists, academics, curators and others working in art fields, and pre-professional students.

  • After the workshop, I will provide individual written feedback on a draft of a piece of writing, artist or teaching statement, project description, etc.


Week 1: Writing for creative work, and about it (most general and creative)

Week 2: Artist Statements & Work Descriptions (tools, technique & feedback)

Week 3 & 4: Workshopping (bring in your writing to get feedback, discuss & prepare specific applications, share resources & opportunities + tools from weeks 1 & 2)

Workshops may be attended as single sessions or as a series.

Workshop dates: Wednesdays, May 1, 8, 15, 22, 2024 || 7-9:30pm EST

The workshop will take place on Zoom.

Cost of each workshop is $40. (Discount for two sessions: $70; for three: $100, all four: $120.) Additionally, for each participant I provide individual, written feedback on an artist statement or project description. *If finances are a barrier, please email me.
