Announcing the 2019 Art Writing Incubator

Sorry, looks like no contributors are set

BURNAWAY’s annual professional development intensive, Art Writing Incubator, will return for its seventh cycle in Summer 2019. Over the course of five weeks in July and August, selected participants will strengthen their abilities as writers, develop professional practices for editorial environments, and study the history of magazines and alternative publishing within the broader context of contemporary art.
