Following the success of the previous Critical Writing Workshops, another edition of Describing the Indescribable
will take place from 26 to 28 February 2016 during the Sonic Acts Academy. ‘Describing the Indescribable’ will be a unique way to attend the Academy since it provides participants with space for group reflection and discussion, geared towards producing texts about the events that unfold within the academy. During the workshop, writers will share insights into specific aspects of their craft (language, style, focus) and provide feedback on the texts written by the workshop participants during the academy.
Jennifer Lucy Allan will lead the Critical Writing Workshop. Allan, previously an editor for The Wire, now works as freelance journalist. She was also involved as an expert in the Critical Writing Workshop that took place during the Sonic Acts Geologic Imagination Festival in 2015.
The workshop hosts a maximum of 7 emerging bloggers, journalists, critics and writers active or interested in the field of interdisciplinary arts (media arts, film, visual arts, performance). Applicants are asked to submit a short motivation and CV to write[@]sonicacts[.]com
. The deadline for applications is 1 February 2016. For an impression, check out articles written by 2015 participants on the Sonic Acts blog
Participants pay a €40,- contribution. Lunches will be provided.
