Next Wave’s Text Camp Reader 2010 is an online publication that draws together a series of critical and creative responses to the 2010 Next Wave Festival, No Risk Too Great.

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 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.

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.

Text Camp Reader 2010 will be launched at Melbourne’s newest art space, Dear Patti Smith on Tuesday 17 August, 6-8 pm. Dear Patti Smith Level 2, Patterson Building 181 Smith St, Collingwood Come and be among the first to browse the new online reader!
