Bitch Media is now accepting applications for its fellowships for writers aimed at developing, supporting, and amplifying emerging, diverse voices in feminist, activist, and pop-culture media. The three-month intensive writing fellowships will be directed by Bitch co-founder, Andi Zeisler.
The fellowships seek for fresh, revitalizing voice in contemporary feminism, one that welcomes complex arguments and refuses to ignore the contradictory and often uncomfortable realities of life in an unequivocally gendered world.
Possible subject areas include reproductive rights and justice, pop-culture criticism, and technology and global feminism. Fellows are expected to produce a minimum of six online articles for Bitch Media in their topic area, in addition to at least one long form article for the magazine Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture.
Fellows will receive mentorship and support in creating, shaping, and editing articles and blog posts. They will also receive follow-up support with placing future articles and essays, and make great connections within the feminist-media community.
Fellows will get US$2,000 stipend for the total duration of the program. Application closes on August 31, 2017.
