WRITING ABOUT YOUR WORK
Maine Media Workshops + College
June 1-2, 2019

Producing a strong photographic body of work is a tremendous accomplishment, but without good writing and editing skills, photographers may face difficulty connecting with galleries, curators, critics, or even their own website visitors. 

In this two-day workshop, learn ways to enhance professional practice through writing. Not your typical “how to” writing workshop, this class will focus on the many instances in which photographers are asked to write about their work including press statements, interviews, newsletter content, and artist biographies.

Hone your writing skills, and leave with a broader understanding of the contemporary photography market.
