Logan Nonfiction Program Now Accepting Applications for Fall 2017 Fellowship


Longform creators working in all media invited to apply by May 31

Rensselaerville, N.Y.— The Logan Nonfiction Program at the Carey Institute for Global Good is now accepting applications from creators of longform nonfiction for its Fall 2017 class of fellows. The program hosts writers, photographers, documentary filmmakers and digital media producers from around the world in the mountains of upstate New York. The application period for the Fall 2017 fellowship – providing residencies lasting between four and 12 weeks – closes on May 31.

The Logan Nonfiction Program is one of the only fellowships in the country to focus exclusively on longform nonfiction. Fellows are provided lodging, meals, workspace and technical  support at  the Carey Institute, a 100-acre estate in the historic village of Rensselaerville, New York. Major funding is provided by the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation of Berkeley, California.

“We support independent writers and filmmakers whose work is at a critical stage,” said Tom Jennings, director of the Logan Nonfiction Program. “With the support of colleagues in residence and advised by industry professionals who conduct master classes, the fellows are inspired to be creative and productive. It has been life-changing for many of them.”

The Logan Nonfiction Program at the Carey Institute seeks to assemble a diverse group of fellows working on socially relevant political, health, environmental, human rights and justice topics. Selections for the Logan Nonfiction Program are based on quality, relevance and promise of applicants’ works as well as their professional experience. Finalists may request to take part in a short stay of at least four weeks but are encouraged to commit to a long stay between 10 and 12 weeks.

Applications for the Fall 2017 class are open through May 31, 2017. Longform creators working in all media are encouraged to complete the application on the Carey Institute’s website. Any questions should be directed to nonfiction@careyinstitute.org.
