How to Apply
We are not currently accepting applications for the Writer in Residence Programme.
The C Writer in Residence programme gives writers engaged in art criticism the opportunity to become closely involved with C Magazine on an in-depth level, as well as a place to grow and develop their writing practice.
The Writer in Residence proposes and, upon acceptance, develops an original piece of writing to be published in a forthcoming issue of the magazine or on the website. C offers support to the Writer in Residence through access to its archives, feedback on their written work, and occasional meetings. The Writer in Residence must be able to work independently, and with their own tools.
C Magazine pays the resident for published work resulting from the residency.
As the most recent Writer in Residence, Chelsea Rozansky's research within the C Magazine archives sought to explore strains of Jewish Messianic thought in Marxist critiques of historicism. The product of this research is Shifting Spotlights, a series of writings and interviews that investigate authorship, attribution and notability. Interested in the labour rendered anonymous in the production of contemporary art discourse and history, through varying systems of marginalization, Rozansky considers how we might animate and constructively converse with the past.
