The American Prospect’s Writing Fellows Program offers journalists at the beginning of their careers the opportunity to spend two full years at the magazine in Washington, D.C., developing their journalistic skills. Each fellow benefits from an intensive mentoring program and is expected to contribute regularly to the website and to the print edition.
Candidates must have strong writing and analytical abilities. A passion for politics, policy, print and digital journalism is a prerequisite. Prior journalism experience is encouraged but not required.
The fellowship pays $33,000 the first year and includes health, dental, and vision benefits.
