Resolution! Review - Writers Wanted

The Place, London is looking for six aspiring dance writers to work alongside
six professional critics on Resolution! Review - the online magazine
which reviews all 108 performances in Resolution!, the UK's biggest
dance platform event, at The Place from 5 January - 14 February 2004.
It's a chance to develop your writing skills while providing the young
artists of Resolution! with valuable feedback. If you're interested,
send a sample dance review (max 200 words) to Tim Wood at The Place, 17
Duke's Road, London WC1H 9PY, (tim.wood@theplace.org.uk) to arrive by
Mon 15 December.

***********************

Stuart adds: This is an exceptional opportunity for those interested to enhance their dance writing skills within a structured process involving leading professionals. Given the paucity of dance writing courses around, to call this "the chance of a lifetime" does not seem an overstatement.

I would be interested to know why you think a review provides "valuable feedback"

Hi Michelle. The comment is by Tim Wood at The Place, so I can't give his rationale.

However, one of the complaints I have heard from young dancemakers is the difficulty of getting dance critics to review their work. And it's not just a UK problem; one young Estonian dancer/choreographer said at a seminar on dance criticism that she wouldn't mind a negative report, just to have a report of any sort.
