The Arts Writers Group was formed in 2016 by Grace Davies, Jo Lanyon and Peter Stiles. Jo Lanyon and Peter Stiles ran a programme of events in the first half of 2017 in Bristol, Plymouth and West Cornwall. Although that programme (which is documented on this web site) has ended – various initiatives launched during that period continue and we are currently putting together our next programme.

Look How Everything Falls Apart in My Hands
A talk by Sally O’Reilly
Sally O’Reilly writes for books, art magazines, opera houses, galleries, auditoria and screens. In this talk O’Reilly focuses on recent projects – a novel, an opera, a performance and a video – to discuss how these recent projects deal with historical, political and theoretical concerns through absurdist, narrative and fragmenting means.
This event is the part of the Art Writers Programme organised in partnership with the Art Writers Group. http://www.spikeisland.org.uk/events/talks/talk-sally-oreilly/

Learning to Love (some types of) Instability
A two-day experimental writing workshop.
Lead by Sally O’Reilly
Sally O’Reilly will introduce some of the myriad possibilities for hybrid forms of writing, in which critical and creative approaches infect one another. Through a series of presentations, exercises and discussions, fiction and non-fiction will become redundant categories. This event is the part of the Art Writers Programme organised in partnership with the Art Writers Group. Places are limited on this workshop to respond to individual practitioners needs.
