Cross-artform bursary places available for visual artists

Posted by: katherine Category: General

Cross-Artform Bursary places available The Poetry Business are offering two cross-artform bursary places for visual artists who have an interest in writing and poetry. The bursary places will give artists the opportunity to be inspired by our new publications and attend our Writing Days, bringing poetry or writing into their practice.  Artists will be given a selection of our 2018-19 publications, and will be offered gratis places at up to four of our Saturday Writing days between now and April 2019.  Poetry Business Writing Days combine a productive exercise-led morning writing session, followed by a critical workshop in the afternoon. Attendees can either use a poem written in the morning session to discuss in the afternoon, or bring a poem developed outside the Writing Day to share with the group.  The brief for the bursaries is completely open, and we welcome applicants to think broadly about how they would respond to their collaboration with us. We are excited to bring visual arts into our work and are open to collaboration in a variety of ways depending on what you’re interested in, possibilities could include digitally or live at readings and events.  We would encourage those who are new to our work to look at our website and consider how the work that The Poetry Business delivers fits in with their visual arts practice. You can find up-to-date information on the business at  www.poetrybusiness.co.uk  If you would like to apply, please send a brief of between 300 and 500 words, with some information on your practice as an artist, why the bursary places interest you, and include some ideas of how you plan to bring your visual arts practice together with our work.  E-mail your brief to office@poetrybusiness.co.uk with the subject heading ‘Cross-artform bursary places’. Please include your full name and a contact number.  We will announce the two artists that we have selected to work with at the end of September 2018.

On Poetry by Jonathan Davidson

"...to have as a companion a poem for over thirty years, the same few words for the same eyes and heart to follow. Oh but this is the joy. This is slow poetry and I announce the coming, give it time, of the Slow Poetry movement..."
