ENGL398A

Writing for the Arts

Examines the situations and genres in which working professionals (practitioners, advocates, administrators, and educators) write about art, culture, and artists. The course covers the complex process that writers need to learn, including how to accommodate information to specific audiences, how to use stylistic and visual devices to make information more accessible, and how to edit their own work as well as that of their peers. Assignments parallel the writing demands that students will face in the workplace, including analyzing and composing artist statements, an arts manifesto, art education guides, press releases about artists and their work, critical reviews of exhibits and performances, and proposals to funding agencies and foundations.
