New Architecture Writers Program 2022 for People of Colour based in London
Deadline: January 7, 2022
Are you a young person of colour (POC) interested in architectural publishing, broadcasting and curation? Applications are open for the New Architecture Writers Program 2022.
New Architecture Writers (N.A.W.) is a free, year-long program offering a small group the opportunity to participate in a series of talks, workshops, tours, writing briefs and other activities, all led by acclaimed editors, architects, journalists, curators and broadcasters. N.A.W. is supported by the Architecture Foundation and the Architectural Review.
Your brief is to write a short article on a contemporary issue for an architectural audience. This piece should tell a story, whether political, social, economic, or environmental, in a way that informs and engages the reader. You should identify a specific subject with relevance to architecture and draw out stimulating conclusions. Your word count is just 500 words, so concision is key.
- The program is intended for people of colour only. Applicants must be under 30 and based in London.
- They invite applications from anyone interested in developing their architectural writing practice. Applicants do not need to have journalistic experience nor necessarily be intent on pursuing a career in journalism.
- All applicants must be able to commit to meeting roughly one evening per fortnight. In addition, applicants have to be able to complete written briefs, which will be set approximately every six weeks throughout the program.
To apply, send a short CV and an original piece of writing using the online application form. The deadline for applications is Friday, 7 January 2022 at 18:00 GMT.
