Paul Caldwell on Writing for Artists

A couple of weeks ago, we were given a talk on Zoom by Paul Caldwell. He is a printmaker and lecturer at Camberwell with a wealth of experience in writing: reviews, articles, proposals and funding bids, catalogues and books. It is so refreshing to hear someone with real-life experience of writing as an artist in a wide field of activities, giving a concentrated and cogent summary of approaches that have proven to work. Not only that, but he also explained why they work. This was invaluable.

If you have read my posts, you will have found that at times I can be rather lengthy. This is not because I cannot write succinctly but because I have wanted to write a journal that when I read back I can understand its context and therefore means something to me so I can distinguish what is important from the confused and trivial.
