What is the state of arts writing in Australia and WA? Why is writing about art important? What impact has the changing mainstream media model had on our arts and culture sector? What new models are emerging for publication of art critique, review and journalism? How can we support the new models to ensure they develop and thrive? What makes good arts writing? How can writers get involved?

This session is part of the WA Writing and Publishing Sector Forum, 2019. This annual forum, curated by Writing WA, provides sector practitioners with the opportunity to network and to discuss current trends, issues and opportunities in the sector.

The Forum spans two full days and each day has been structured in two halves – morning and afternoon – so that you can attend both days, a single day, or any combination of half days that you prefer. Choose the ticket type that best suits you, your schedule and your areas of greatest interest.
