The American Prospect welcomes applications for our 2019-2021 writing fellowships
The Prospect’s Writing Fellows Program offers journalists the opportunity to spend two years developing their skills with the magazine in Washington, D.C.
Each fellow benefits from an intensive mentoring program with the experts on our editorial team, and is expected to contribute regularly. The program runs from September 2019 through June 2021.
We seek candidates with strong writing and analytical abilities who will generate story ideas as well as take assignments. A passion for politics and policy is a prerequisite. Prior journalism experience is encouraged but not required. We are committed to a diverse workplace and we support our people with ongoing career-development opportunities.
Our goal is to ensure TAP fellows develop the relationships, credibility, quality of writing, and more than enough clips to pursue a career in journalism. Past fellows have gone on to leadership roles at The New York Times, Vox, The Atlantic, Slate, The Washington Post, Daily Beast, and many other publications.
The fellowship pays an annual salary of $38,000 and includes health, dental, and vision benefits.
Founded in 1990, The American Prospect is devoted to promoting informed discussion and debate on public-policy matters from a progressive perspective. Through narrative interpretation of complex issues, we seek to disseminate the ideas and the analyses necessary to support an informed discourse. We don’t just make magazines, we make a difference.
