Call for Writers: Jerwood Writer in Residence 2022


The Jerwood Writer in Residence 2022 programme is an opportunity for promising UK-based early-career visual arts writers to develop their practice. It includes a £1,500 fee, access to a £300 mentoring budget and a £500 production budget for the commissioning of four to five pieces of new critical responses to both Jerwood Arts’ Exhibitions and Events programme at Jerwood Space in London, and Jerwood Arts’ wider work. There are two Jerwood Writer in Residence opportunities in 2022. Each residency is six months long and responds to two of three exhibitions.

Applications are welcome from early-career arts writers specialising in visual arts criticism. Fiction and poetry writers are also welcome but need to demonstrate past experience of writing critically about exhibitions and/or visual art in your application.
