10 week Creative Writing Course at ARC

Linda Cleary will be running a 10 week Creative Writing course at ARC from February 2010. The course will look at various techniques and exercises to open up & improve writing writing skills, work with metaphor and imagary, create texts and narratives to given themes and word counts as well as free writing and the end goal will be to write a 1000 word short story. The course will consist of one 3 hour session a week for 10 weeks. Maximum 10 people. Please email me for more information and booking:

Stipend Update

ARC would just like to say a big thank you to all the artists that applied for the stipend and to let you know that we are going through the applications daily and still hope to be on target with a decision by the end of this month; meaning that we will inform everyone by the beginning of January.

The standard is high and we received over 60 applications for the 2 awards, so I am sure you can all imagine it will be a difficult decision.

It is inspiring and energy giving to read through so many wonderful proposals and feel linked in with so many international artists. We are looking forward to opening our doors and living creatively and artfully with all our resident artists of 2010.

Art & solidarity, Linda
