Young Art Writers was an educational initiative jointly run by the Royal Hibernian Academy and Temple Bar Galleries + Studios, centred around the topic of writing within visual art practices.

It culminated in a series workshops and tours of exhibitions over several weekends, in which 11 participants were introduced to the subject of how writing and the act of writing are presented with contemporary art.

Inspired by these workshops, the participants were asked to create a written piece on whatever subject they choose. This journal was produced to catalogue their responses, which varied in format, from essays and poetry, to free-form and experimental pieces. It was sold at the Dublin Art Book fair in November 2018.
