Logan Nonfiction Fellowship
The Carey Institute for Global Good believes that an informed, educated and engaged citizenry is essential to the functioning of democratic society.
Our Logan Nonfiction Program supports this belief by advancing deeply reported, longform nonfiction about the most pressing issues of the day and helping to disseminate it on a variety of media platforms to the widest possible audience.
Faced with shrinking advertising revenues and audiences, many magazines, newspapers, broadcasters and book publishers have reduced in-depth projects. Further, massive technological changes in the media industry have transformed the marketplace. The Logan Nonfiction Program seeks to address the public’s need for longform nonfiction to inform the policy debate essential to democracy.No such program in the United States supports only nonfiction reporters and writers working on such important social, political, health, environmental, human rights and justice topics.Logan Nonfiction fellows at the Carey Institute are provided all the necessary tools to complete their critical work. Lodging, work space, sophisticated technological support (including Wi-Fi, a state-of-the-art screening room and dedicated space, equipment and software for video, film and radio editing) and meals are provided. Fellows may also benefit from the mentorship of several board members and internationally renowned journalists.We also help selected print fellows convert their work into audio, video or digital media through the expertise of our partners. The Institute is eager to convene issue-oriented conferences related to our fellows’ projects to bring their reporting to policy-makers and other experts.Nonfiction writers, photographers and documentarians can review our guidelines and apply to the Logan Nonfiction Program online. Applications are open throughout the year for semiannual residency cohorts attending in January through May or October through December. A fellow’s duration of stay may range from four weeks to three months.Please cite PCDNetwork as the source of the posting in your application.
