Designed for arts professionals of all levels, this lively webinar helps make a challenging task much easier.

The class is for students from Cembalest’s art writing and artist statement classes, as well as anyone with a writing project in process. In the first part of the class, Cembalest will share tips, best practices, and inspiration. In the second part, each participant will share a brief writing sample (up to 200 words).  Cembalest will offer suggestions on craft, style, organization, language, description, message and other essential elements of each text.

As an editor, Cembalest has spent her career training writers to communicate in clear and accessible language. Her on-target comments and practical advice will give every participant new insights in ways to convey essential information and to translate their ideas into words.
