– Emerging Writers Program –

The Gertrude Contemporary and ARTAND Australia Emerging Writers Program 2005 - 2014 was a selective mentorship program that developed from a Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne, initiative. It pairs four emerging writers with leading arts specialists each year. Since 2008, ARTAND Australia and Gertrude Contemporary have offered participants the opportunity to develop their writing practice, publish their works and gain further insight into the field of contemporary art writing, featuring their work in the pages of ARTAND Australia and through Gertrude Contemporary’s Studio 12 exhibition program.
