Writer in Residence

The Writer in Residence programme provides valuable, paid, publishing opportunities online and in print for outstanding arts writers. It invites resident writers to engage with the programme as they choose, with the aim of publishing thoughts and essays that open up wider contextual debate surrounding the issues and themes explored through Jerwood Arts projects. This writing provides featured artists with much-valued critical reflection and context on their work and exhibitions.
