Next Wave is proud to launch its latest online publication, Text Camp Reader 2010.

The Reader was produced through Text Camp 2010, a three-stage workshop, mentorship and publication program developed by Next Wave. An ambitious evolution of the inaugural, and highly successful, Text Camp program (2008), Text Camp 2010 provided opportunities for nine emerging writers and five emerging publishers to work with, and learn from, three established writers and editors.

Comprising three parallel teaching streams, which explored methods in creative and critical writing and online, electronic publishing, Text Camp 2010 explored the many ways that art projects can be responded to through writing.

Text Camp Reader 2010 incorporates reviews, interviews, feature articles and experimental contemporary art practice engaged with text. The styles of writing range from the critical and analytical, to creative, fictional and speculative.

Featuring texts by:
Miles Allinson, Jessica Booth, Katie Dircks, Duncan Felton, Megan Garrett-Jones, Paige Luff, Tiara the Merch Girl, Amelia Schmidt, Stephanie Van Schilt, Pip Wallis, Nicholas Walton-Healey, Sean Wilson, Anna Zammit

In response to the following 2010 Next Wave Festival projects:
Shine on You Crazy Diamond, Territory Time, HIGH VIS DANDY, Hole in the Wall, [please give: it a moment], Structural Integrity, Mercy Street, The View From Here: 19 Perspectives on Feminism, Bromance, The Chicken Stampede, After the Rainbow, I’m Fine, “I thought a musical was being made”, Comfort Zones, Keynote Lecture 2: Even My Best Works Dash Their Hearts on Rocks, The Infinity Tube
