LOGAN NONFICTION PROGRAM
Journalism for an informed democracy
The Carey Institute for Global Good believes that an informed, educated and engaged citizenry is essential to the functioning of democratic society.
The Logan Nonfiction Program at the Carey Institute supports this belief by advancing deeply reported, longform nonfiction about the most pressing issues of the day and then helping to disseminate it on a variety of media platforms to the widest possible audience.
Faced with shrinking advertising revenues and audiences, many magazines, newspapers, broadcasters and book publishers have reduced in-depth projects. Further, massive technological changes in the media industry have transformed the marketplace. The Logan Nonfiction Program seeks to address the public’s need for longform nonfiction to inform the policy debate essential to democracy.
No such program in the United States supports only nonfiction reporters, writers and documentarians working on such important social, political, health, environmental, human rights and justice topics.
