Entry-level arts & culture journalism fellowship

Entry-level journalists interested in arts and culture journalism should consider applying for a new paid fellowship. The 8-month part-time positions, which can be done via telecommuting, will give two journalists the chance to write stories for magazines such as Mother Jones, ColorLines and WireTap.

"This part-time fellowship will run from May 15 to December 15, 2009," the ad states. "Each fellow will receive a $10,000 stipend as well as consistent mentorship and editorial support. Fellows are expected to work 2-3 full, workdays each week (about 20 hours), produce at least one monthly feature (written, podcast, video or photo slide show), one interview and four blog posts per month. Fellows will also attend a four-day journalism 'boot camp' (all expenses paid) at the end of May in San Francisco or New York City. This training period will also provide an opportunity to meet the editors, as well as Arts and Culture Advisory Board members representing a broad range of artists."

By May 1, send resume, three references, three work samples and a 500-word statement on why this fellowship would be of value to you to: Attn: Arts and Culture Fellowship, WireTap Magazine, 222 Sutter Street, Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94108. Or e-mail:

Location: San Francisco, California
