Photography+ is Photoworks’ quarterly online magazine. Read by international audiences, the digital publication showcases new writing, imagery, and perspectives on photography. Each issue focuses on a different theme, exploring how photography crosses over with everyday life. In past issues, we have focused on themes such as Time, Architecture, Dance, and Space.
Photoworks would like to appoint a Writer in Residence for 2023 to contribute to four issues of Photography+. This role includes working closely with the editor to deliver four articles of approximately 1000 words.
The successful writer should have a working knowledge of contemporary photography as well as a willingness to look beyond photography for inspiration. This opportunity suits an early-career writer looking to gain experience writing and publishing online. Photoworks is based in the UK, but writers are welcome to apply from all over the world. This is a paid residency with a fee of £300 per article, with expected outputs of four articles plus online or in-person meetings with the Photoworks team. Each article is commissioned with a full brief from the Photography+ editor, developed in discussion with the writer. Articles must be delivered on time and on-topic, and will be edited before publication by the Photography+ editor and copy editor.
The opportunity is open to all and runs from March 2023 to February 2024. Photoworks strives to be an inclusive organisation that represents a broad range of experiences and perspectives. We are particularly interested to hear from candidates who are underrepresented in the arts sector because of ethnicity, socio-economic background, and/or disability.
Please complete your application by 20 February 2023. If you’d like to submit your application in an alternative format, or if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants will be informed by 06 March, and the residency will begin in April.
