$2000 Feminist Writing Fellowships from Bitch Media

Bitch Media is currently accepting applications for their 2020 writing fellowships. Selected writing fellows will spend 3 months working with Bitch Media to produce articles in one of four subject areas:

  • Sexual politics
  • Pop-culture criticism
  • Technology
  • Global feminism

According to their application page:

We’re pleased to announce that the Bitch Media Fellowships for Writers applications are now open!  A series of three-month intensive writing fellowships, the goal is to develop, support, and amplify emerging, diverse voices in feminist, activist, and pop-culture media. All fellows will work under the guidance of Bitch cofounder Andi Zeisler.

The fellowships were created in order to cultivate and amplify new voices. If you are a writer who has minimal publication experience, we strongly encourage you to apply. If you are passionate about one of the above subject areas but do not have a history of writing or blogging about them, we strongly encourage you to apply. If you are a writer still figuring out what subjects obsess you, we strongly encourage you to apply.

The application process requires a cover letter, writing samples, your resume, and more.
