BuzzFeed is offering a four-month long fellowship for up-and-coming writers. The Emerging Writers Fellowship writers will work closely with BuzzFeed news’ editorial staff and will receive a stipend of $12,000.
Here’s Saeed Jones, BuzzFeed’s LGBT editor, with additional details:
These writers will focus on personal essay writing, cultural reportage, and profiles. During their time in fellowship, writers will be expected to pitch, report, and write with the added benefit of writing workshops, panel discussions with editors and writers from throughout the industry, and assigned readings. Mentorship within the program will focus on teaching writers how to thrive as freelancers as well as on staff at media organizations.
The deadline to apply for this fellowship is October 1.
