Send your resume and a cover letter to with the subject line, FELLOWSHIP. In addition, please include an original sample article. We want to see how you think and how you write. It doesn’t have to be a novella – just a short (300-500 word) piece with a clear headline and concise content. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT APPLICATIONS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES.




We only accept new writers seasonally, so it may be a while until you hear back from us. Email if you’re interested, and check out our FAQ for common questions.
