The American Prospect's Writing Fellows Program offers journalists at the beginning of their career the opportunity to spend two full years at the magazine in Washington, D.C., actively developing their journalistic skills. Each fellow will write a minimum of three to four full-length feature articles. Fellows will also regularly write shorter, online pieces and blog daily for TAPPED. We are seeking candidates who are opinionated and comfortable generating article ideas rather than relying on assignments. A passion for blogging is appreciated.
As the current Writing Fellow, I'll just say that working at TAP has been an absolute pleasure, and if you have any interest in policy and journalism, TAP is a great place to begin. The deadline for applications is Feb. 15, so if you're interested, you should probably get started.
