      EVENT DETAILS
      Writing for Visual Artists - Getting the Basics Right (Bodmin)

      Katrina Naomi will be leading a day of writing for artists with the aim is to help artists feel more comfortable with writing and gain confidence and experience. Katrina will help you to write a short biog, update (or create) an artist's CV and write some copy for your website or other online profiles. She'll talk about using plain English and whether there's any place for ArtSpeak. She will discuss issues of planning and structure, and how much information to share online. There will also be time to demystify some of the basics of grammar and punctuation. But it won't be like school! By the end of the day, Katrina hopes that artists will feel more confident in their writing - and have written a wonderful artist's bio. Katrina Naomi is a poet, mentor, translator and critic. She tutors for Arvon, the Poetry School and Ty Newydd, and runs Poetry Surgeries for the Poetry Society. She holds a PhD in Creative Writing from Goldsmiths (her research is on violence in contemporary poetry). In 2016, Katrina was writer-in-residence at the Arnolfini and in 2018 at the Leach Pottery. In 2015 she became a post-doctoral researcher at Goldsmiths and was made a Hawthornden Fellow. She has also received an award from the Royal Literary Fund. What to bring...
