Bitch Media, a non-profit feminist media organization, has announced the funding of four new writing fellowships. The fellowships aim to help emerging writers in the feminist, activist, and pop-culture fields develop their voices. Over the course of three months, each fellow will produce six online articles, one long-form print article, and will receive useful guidance from those already established in feminist media. Additionally, each fellow will receive a stipend of $1,500.
The application deadline is November 1st. For more details on how to apply, check out this article on Bitch Media’s website.
Augury Books’ founding editor, Kate Angus, will be featured in Outpost19‘s A Book of Uncommon Prayer, an anthology of “everyday invocations,” due out in May 2015. Angus appears alongside Alicia Jo Rabins, a recent winner of the APR/Honickman First Book Prize and reader for our offsite AWP event in 2014, as well as a myriad of other known talents, including Marie Howe, Bob Hicok, Leslie Jamison, Catherine Lacey, and Rick Moody. The anthology is edited by Matthew Vollmer, and all proceeds from book sales will go to 826 Valencia, a San Francisco-based non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting creative and expository writing skills in students ages six to eighteen.
