About this Event

It may be difficult to break into professional art criticism, but there are more opportunities than ever to get your art writing published. So how should you go about it? What does it take to catch the attention of editors and how can you make sure that you’re giving them what they need?

Join Thomas Marks, writer and editor of Apollo, for a practical briefing on how to develop your own skills as an art writer. This lecture offers tips on how to develop your own critical writing and explores current and emerging opportunities for getting it published, as well as giving pragmatic advice on how to get ahead in art criticism.

This lecture is delivered in partnership with Apollo Magazine.

Faculty

Thomas Marks is the editor and publisher of Apollo, one of the world’s most prestigious art magazines. Since becoming editor in 2013, Thomas has relaunched the Apollo website (www.apollo-magazine.com) as a forum for daily art news, comment and reviews, and established the forward-looking Apollo 40 Under 40, a publication celebrating talented young people in the art world. He regularly interviews artists for the magazine, and has written many essays about museums and their collections – including the Uffizi and the Prado.

Marks has a DPhil from Magdalen College, Oxford, and has taught extensively on 19th-century literature and culture. From 2011–16, he was a founding editor of The Junket, an online quarterly magazine that published original essays, fiction and poetry. He is also a trustee of Art UK (artuk.org), the cultural education charity that exists to open up the UK’s public art collections to global audiences through digitization and storytelling.
