Photoworks Writer in Residence

Photography+ is Photoworks’ quarterly online magazine. Read by international audiences, the digital publication showcases new writing, imagery, and perspectives on photography. Each issue focuses on a different theme, exploring how photography crosses over with everyday life. In past issues, we have focused on themes such as Time, Architecture, Dance, and Space.

Photoworks would like to appoint a Writer in Residence for 2023 to contribute to four issues of Photography+. This role includes working closely with the editor to deliver four articles of approximately 1000 words.

The successful writer should have a working knowledge of contemporary photography as well as a willingness to look beyond photography for inspiration. This opportunity suits an early-career writer looking to gain experience writing and publishing online. Photoworks is based in the UK, but writers are welcome to apply from all over the world. This is a paid residency with a fee of £300 per article, with expected outputs of four articles plus online or in-person meetings with the Photoworks team. Each article is commissioned with a full brief from the Photography+ editor, developed in discussion with the writer. Articles must be delivered on time and on-topic, and will be edited before publication by the Photography+ editor and copy editor.

The opportunity is open to all and runs from April 2024 to March 2025. Photoworks strives to be an inclusive organisation that represents a broad range of experiences and perspectives. We are particularly interested to hear from candidates who are underrepresented in the arts sector because of ethnicity, socio-economic background, and/or disability.

Please complete your application by 20 February 2023. If you’d like to submit your application in an alternative format, or if you have any questions, please email

Applicants will be informed by 06 March, and the residency will begin in April.
