Writing for Arts Periodicals

Wednesday, March 8 from 2-4pm at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre

Led by Michael DiRisio

FREE admission

Learn where to find calls for papers, how to develop and submit an essay or review proposal, and best practices for working with editors. We will review three sample exhibition reviews to discuss common approaches to writing about contemporary art, and outline a typical writer's process, from proposal and development to proofing and final publishing. We will also review a standard contributors contract, highlighting copyright practices and writers' fees.

Michael DiRisio has had writing published in Art Papers, Afterimage, Fuse Magazine, Esse Magazine and Public Journal, among others, with forthcoming essays in BlackFlash and Espace Magazine. He is currently the Artistic Director of Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre, where he edits the centre's bi-annual arts periodical Syphon, and has previously worked in publishing with C Magazine.

Presented by Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre in collaboration with the Agnes Etherington Art Centre.
