Fall 2023 Writing Fellows: Applications Close 9/10!

By: Phillip Bader

Applications for the Fall 2023 Writing Fellows Program Cohort are now open!

Do you dream of seeing your byline in print? Then our Writing Fellows Program is for you!

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 Washington, DC-based fellowship is tailored for aspiring writers interested in covering issues and publishing in outlets surrounding our nation’s capital. This fellowship 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.

The virtual 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 DC and across the country.

Both fellowships are small-group writing workshops, allowing fellows to dive in deep with instructors and receive personalized feedback.

Food and beverages are provided during the in-person sessions–unfortunately, we haven’t yet mastered virtual beverages, so virtual fellows will have to BYOB. You must be able to attend all six evening sessions, whether in person or virtual.

Alumni have been published in the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Examiner, National Review, Reason, Forbes, the Daily Caller, and many other publications. They 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.

Applications are open through September 10th. Apply now!
