Embark’s New Writing Fellowship Program seeks impassioned authors to write about Embark programming

Embark is happy to announce an exciting new opportunity for writers. Are you an art historian, critic, academic or an artist with a creative writing practice? Apply now! DEADLINE: September 22nd at midnight

We are looking for critical essays, art historical analyses, artist interviews, journalistic pieces, and creative writing to include in our published exhibition catalogs. Students will get valuable experience in working with a professional gallery, meet and network with other artists and writers from local institutions and learn best practices for creating content for exhibition catalogs. Embark will publish and publicize the writing of these fellows and also provide a small working stipend of $150.

We have 2 openings for the Fall 2016 Writing Fellowship Program. Each fellow will be responsible for 3 pieces of writing (1000-3000 words each) throughout the semester, covering our upcoming exhibitions Humor US and #simulacra.
