Success in today’s art world requires polished writing skills, whether it’s an artist’s statement, a grant proposal, a promotional email, or a social media post. In this workshop, we will discuss strategies for efficiently and effectively promoting your work with the power of words. Learn how to craft and edit your writing to capture attention and reach your intended audience.

Please email to info@printshop.org a week in advance, or bring a few examples of your prior writing for discussion: artist’s statements, grant proposals, emails, etc.
