Artist Statement Writing Workshop

Artists often say that writing a statement is harder than creating their work. BURNAWAY Magazine proudly presents Artist Statement Writing Workshop series, a two-day writing workshop for emerging and mid-career artists.  While a statement will not make or break an artist’s career, having a well-written and succinct statement is a tool that they can sharpen and change as their artistic vision changes and evolves.  The workshop will aim to encourage growth by demystifying the writing process and allowing artists to share feedback with each other.  Each session will be limited to fifteen participants to maximize the potential for peer-to-peer dialogue. Preference will be given to BURNAWAY members, but otherwise, we will accept applicants on a first-come basis. Please contact us ( if you have any questions.
