Emily Holmes (MA, 2014) has been selected for the Art Writing Workshop funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation. She will be working with New York Times art critic Holland Cotter to develop her freelance writing practice. The Art Writing Workshop—a partnership between the Arts Writers Grant Program and the International Art Critics Association/USA Section (AICA/USA)—gives practicing writers the opportunity to strengthen their work through one-on-one email and phone consultations with leading art critics. Focusing on the craft of writing, the workshop will use participants’ writing samples as a springboard for an in-depth consideration of such issues as voice, prose style, organizational structure, and argumentation. Ten applicants are chosen to participate each year.
