Write with Us is a free workshop for writers of all levels, designed to encourage and strengthen important art looking and writing skills. This workshop will aim to educate and inspire both new and experienced writers, as well as address the present need for more engaging critical responses to contemporary art in Dallas. Each workshop will focus exclusively on one Dallas Contemporary exhibiting artist.
This Write with Us workshop will begin with a guided tour of Margarita Cabrera’s exhibition It is Impossible to Cover the Sun with a Finger, followed by discussion and writing exercises led by art historian and writer Heather Bowling.
All guests will be invited to submit their writing for the chance to be selected for publication on dallascontemporary.org.
This program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required due to limited space. Please reserve your spot by registering here.
Designed for ages 17 and up. Please bring your favorite writing materials.
