About the Program
The Logan Nonfiction Program offers two fellowship classes per year—one in the fall (October-December) and one in the spring (February-April).
Program welcome between 10-20 nonfiction writers, documentary filmmakers, photojournalists, podcasters and multimedia creators per class. Fellows are provided lodging, meals, workspace, professional guidance and community. Fellowships range between 5-10 weeks and take place on the Carey Institute for Global Good’s historic 100-acre campus in upstate New York.
The Logan Nonfiction Program accepts applications from:
- Nonfiction writers
- Documentary filmmakers
- Podcasters and radio reporters
- Multimedia creators
Applicants must be at work on a long-form project in order to apply (e.g.: an article, book, film, collection, podcast, etc.). They accept applications from academics, memoirists and non-professional journalists, as long as the intended audience of the project is the general public and the work is deeply reported.
They are particularly interested in supporting projects that examine the most pressing issues of the day, including but not limited to: conflict and security; democracy and governance; education; environment and climate change; food security; gender, race, sexual orientation, disability and intersectionality; globalization; health; inequality and exclusion; media and journalism; social justice; and sustainability and resilience.
Fellows are selected for the program based on the quality, relevance, professional experience and promise of the applicant’s work.
