Writer In Residence


The Writer in Residence program is focused on fostering arts writing and criticism by emerging arts writers.

The introduction of text as art and the notion of the artist working in the study instead of the studio gave me, as a writer, entrance into the game
— Lucy Lippard

The program provides a 6 - 12 month residency at The Mill in a private studio, six pieces of commissioned writing and the production of a final publication, compiling all works (a retrospective, of sorts). 

Designed to support South Australian arts writing - whether writing about contemporary art or creative writing - the Writer in Residence aims to create a broader audience for arts writing. The program strengthens the field as a whole and ensures that critical writing remains a valued mode of engaging the visual arts.
