MacDowell is looking for writers working on long-form journalism projects to apply for a Fall 2017 residency.
The MacDowell Colony provides time and space for artists to work on creative projects. MacDowell has expanded its support for journalists by providing additional residencies and project funding of up to $2,500 in addition to financial aid for accepted artists engaged in long-form journalism projects. Since launching this initiative in 2015, we have provided residencies to more than 30 journalists, including Mario Kaiser, Alia Malek, Jessica Stern, Andrea Elliott, Jen Percy, and Shane Bauer. We’ve also awarded $13,872 in project funding thanks to a generous grant from the Calderwood Charitable Foundation.
MacDowell’s Art of Journalism initiative is advancing MacDowell’s legacy of supporting some of the finest voices in non-fiction, from the essays of James Baldwin to Frances Fitzgerald’s investigations into the Vietnam War.
