Guernica Fellowship Program

We are pleased to announce that Guernica is looking for applicants to join its spring/summer fellowship class. The program, which runs from the beginning of January through June, aims to provide deep training in magazine editing and production, coupled with opportunities to work on a dedicated writing or multimedia project with an editor-mentor. We estimate the weekly time commitment to be from ten to fifteen hours. Up to five emerging writers, editors, and multimedia journalists will be selected for a six-month fellowship, which will include:

–       Opportunities to work across the editorial planning and production cycle of the magazine

–       Fact-checking and copy editing

–       Reading submissions

–       Contributing ideas for forthcoming issues

–       Assisting with publicity and social media

–       Developing at least one piece for publication

–       Mentorship from senior staff and training from industry professionals

Our focus when reviewing applications will be on finding emerging writers, journalists, and editors with clear passion for digital publishing and literary reportage, and evident intellectual curiosity.

To submit, please include:

1) A cover letter with biographical information, including related experiences, why you want the fellowship, and how it relates to your professional ambitions.

2) A three- to five-page writing sample or link to portfolio of multimedia work; both published and unpublished work is fine.

3) A pitch for a project you’d like to work on during the fellowship.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through Submittable and the reading period will close by November 10.

Guernica values diversity and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds; however, we are only able to consider candidates residing in the greater New York area.  Only applications received through Submittable will be reviewed. For any questions, please contact: publisher@guernicamag.com.
