My latest article for Professional Artist Magazine: “Get the Writing Right” April/May 2017
I help visual artists write about their work. If you have an arts-related writing project, contact me for one-on-one editing and consulting. I can help with your website content, artist statement and bio, art funding proposals and cover letters. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. I welcome your questions.
$40 per hour. I accept PayPal. We’ll save time if you read my book, ART-WRITE, and complete some of the exercises before you send me your draft.
I’ve taught in Portland, Seattle, Denver, and San Francisco- Ask me about leading my ART-Write workshop in your area.
Workshop Description: For today’s working artist, writing is essential to sustaining a career. Self-promotion relies on the written word, yet finding the right words to describe your work can be a stumbling block.
This workshop will provide crystal clear direction on how to write the artist statement and bio, plus guidance on writing for websites, proposals, press releases and cover letters. The curriculum, based on Vicki’s popular book, Art-Write: The Writing Guide for Visual Artists, includes helpful prompts, definitions and techniques. Lively exchange and instant feedback from Vicki brings clarity and insight.
This class is useful for any artist who needs to produce a statement, update their statement, or write in order to approach new opportunities in the arts.
