The Critical Writing program commissions emerging writers to pursue the underlying theory and contemporary criticism that informs individual Session projects, initiating a meaningful exchange between artists and writers while facilitating the mutual production of new work. We accept unsolicited applications and applications by nomination on a rolling basis.  Applicants are placed on file and paired with Session artists throughout the year.  Fellows are given editorial support and a $750 honorarium.
Editorial support for Critical Writing provided by Kemi Adeyemi, Well Read.


If you’d like to be considered for the fellowship, please send a resume, writing sample, and a brief explanation of your interest in the program to
