The Critical Writing program commissions emerging writers to pursue the underlying themes and ideas that inform individual Session projects, initiating meaningful exchanges between artists and writers and facilitating the mutual production of new work.

Fellows are given editorial support and a $1000 honorarium. Editorial support for Critical Writing provided by Kemi Adeyemi.

We are still accepting proposals from writers interested in covering the following artists: Jean-Marc Superville Sovak, Suhyun Choi, AYDO (A young Yu & Nicholas Oh), A.Sef & Akeema-Zane, and School for Poetic Computation. Artist bios and descriptions of each project can be found here.

If you’d like to be considered for the fellowship, please combine the following into a single PDF and send to
– Your top 2 choices from our upcoming Session artist cohort that you want to work with and a few sentences per artist explaining why
– A brief explanation of your interest in the Critical Writing program
– A writing sample
– A resume/CV
– Your application will be shared with the artists you name.

Please note that applications are due to by September 15th at 11:59 pm EST.
