Arts Journalism & Writing Reviews

Tutor: Dorothy Max Prior

Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR
Next dates: Sunday 26 April & Sunday 7 June 2020 

Interested in writing about the arts and popular culture? Two one-day workshops for writers (or would-be writers) who are budding bloggers, arts journalists, or cultural commentators. 

Day 1:  Who and what are reviews for? How can we give constructive rather than destructive criticism? How do we go about starting a blog, or setting up a podcast? Explore examples of good critical writing and inventive arts journalism. Suggestions will be made for work to be seen in the Brighton Festival, and a related reviewing task set, to be brought to Day 2!

Day 2: Dig deeper into reviewing, cultural commentary, blogging, and longform writing about the arts, popular culture, or social issues. You’ll look at ways to move your journalism skills up a notch or two, and at editorial guidelines for submitting copy for publication. Time will be allocated to looking at examples of each student’s reviews, blogs or essays.

Each workshop can be attended separately, but the second workshop is envisioned as stage 2, for people who have either attended the first workshop, or who have some previous experience, and can bring samples of recent reviews written. 

15% reduction if booking both workshops. Please call office to book at the discounted rate - this can't be done online.
