The VW Editorial Apprenticeship is a semester-long paid program that allows emerging writers and editors to learn how an online journal works while expanding their art writing practice.
Introducing Variable Voice, our online journal featuring exhibition reviews, essays, interviews, Love Letters, and other series that try to find a balance between generous, accessible language, zealously researched topics, and experimental prose that challenges the conventions of each format.
The funds will go toward publishing exceptional reviews, essays, and interviews by West Coast art writers.
