ARTS WRITERS GRANT PROGRAM

Founded in 2006, the Arts Writers Grant Program is funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and administered by Creative Capital to recognize the precarious situation of arts writers, and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. As the COVID-19 outbreak further threatens the cultural and arts writing landscape, the Arts Writers Grant Program is grateful for the Andy Warhol Foundation’s continued support.

The application deadline is May 20, 11:59 EST

The Arts Writers grant supports both emerging and established writers who are writing about contemporary visual art. By “contemporary visual art,” we mean visual art made since World War II. Projects on post-WWII work in adjacent fields—architecture, design, film, performance, sound, experimental music, etc.—will only be considered if they directly and significantly engage the discourses and concerns of contemporary visual art.

Ranging from $15,000 to $50,000 in three categories—articles, books, and short-form writing—these grants support projects addressing both general and specialized art audiences, from short reviews for magazines and newspapers to in-depth scholarly studies. We also support art writing that engages criticism through interdisciplinary methods or experiments with literary styles. As long as a writer meets the eligibility and publishing requirements, they can apply.

We recommend that you read through the Application Guide before filling out the online application. Eligibility requirements and writing sample submission word counts vary for each project type.

Writers who meet the program’s eligibility requirements are invited to apply in one of the following categories:

  • Articles
  • Books
  • Short-Form Writing

Due to legal constraints we can only fund U.S. citizens, permanent residents of the United States, and holders of O-1 visas. For guidelines and additional eligibility requirements, please visit our website.

We advocate for an inclusive community of writers and thinkers. With our open application, our jurors, and our grants, we make a concerted effort to support arts writing in its various forms, with the recognition of difference in gender, race, ethnicity, geography, age, ability, and experience.
