Get Published: Apply for the Fall 2020 Writing Fellows Program
Do you dream of seeing your byline in places like: The Federalist, the Wall Street Journal, Washington Examiner, and National Review?
Your opinion matters–we’ll help you share it with the world. Apply for the Fall 2020 session of AFF’s Writing Fellows Program.
As a writing fellow, you will:
– Learn how to pitch your work and build your portfolio
– Hone your writing skills in policy, opinion, and journalism
– Make connections with nationally known writers and editors
The fellowship has two cohort options available for application: the Washington, DC-based cohort and the state-based cohort.
The Washington, DC-based fellowship is tailored for aspiring writers interested in covering issues and publishing in outlets surrounding our nation’s capital. The DC-based fellowship typically meets in-person on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 pm ET for six weeks and features prominent writers and editors from the DC area. As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, the Washington, DC-based Fall 2020 fellowship may meet virtually for all or part of the fellowship.
The state-based fellowship is held virtually via webcam on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 pm ET for six weeks and is designed for writers outside the DC-area. This state-based fellowship features well-known writers and editors from both Washington, DC, and across the country.
Both fellowships are small-group writing workshops, allowing fellows to dive in deep with instructors and receive personalized feedback.
Writing Fellows Program alumni have been published in outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Examiner, National Review, Reason, Forbes, the Daily Caller, and many others. Many have gone on to work as reporters and opinion writers at prominent media outlets, as staffers in the White House and on Capitol Hill, and as senior fellows at think-tanks.
