Logan Nonfiction Program accepting applications for fall 2018 fellowship

RENSSELAERVILLE — The Logan Nonfiction Program is accepting applications — on the Carey Institute’s website — until June 15 for the fall 2018 fellowship taking place October through December at the Carey Institute for Global Good.

Writers, documentary filmmakers, photographers, and multimedia producers working on longform, deeply reported nonfiction projects are invited to apply. The program provides fellows with lodging, meals, mentorship, and community for up to 10 weeks.

The mission of the Logan Nonfiction Program is to support democracy by advancing independent journalistic inquiry and investigation. The program has three primary goals: supporting ethically uncompromised accountability journalism; advocating for and promoting independent nonfiction in the United States and globally; and increasing the professional skills and expertise of journalists and nonprofit reporting organizations so their work is amplified and has positive impact.

Applications for Fall 2018 will be accepted from professional journalists and filmmakers working on topics representing socially relevant political, health, environmental, human rights, and justice topics. Applicants are judged based on professional experience and the quality, relevance, and promise of the project they propose to work on during their stay. Prospective fellows commit to at least five weeks in residency but are encouraged to stay for the full 10-week duration.

Questions should be directed to nonfiction@careyinstitute.org.
