INFO SESSION: Open City Fellowships

The Asian American Writers’ Workshop is now accepting applications for the Open City Project Grant Fellowship and the Open City Muslim Communities Fellowship. If you are a strong, voice-driven storyteller who cares about social justice movements and transporting readers to the creative subcultures of color in neighborhoods across Queens, Manhattan, and Brooklyn, then consider applying for our Open City Fellowships! Come learn more and meet our editor at an information session on Thursday, August 24 at 6:00 PM.

The Open City Project Grant Fellowship will give writers the opportunity to write and publish narrative nonfiction over the span of six months on the vibrant immigrant communities of New York City. Grantees receive $2,500, publication opportunities in Open City—which documents the pulse of metropolitan Asian America as it’s being lived on the streets of New York right now—and journalism training through the Open City Workshop Series. For the period of October 2017—April 2018 we will bring on three Open City Grantees.

The Open City Muslim Communities Fellowship will give emerging writers of color from communities under attack from Islamophobia the opportunity to publish narrative nonfiction about Muslim communities in New York City over the span of six months. Grantees receive $2,500, skill-building workshops, and publishing opportunities. The fellowship will span October 2017 – April 2018.

In addition to the information session, please refer to the Open City Fellowship FAQ.
