LOGAN NONFICTION PROGRAM
Journalism for an informed democracy
The Logan Nonfiction Program believes that an informed, educated and engaged citizenry is essential to the functioning of democratic society.
We rely on journalists to filter misinformation, ensure transparency and provide us with accurate and unbiased content. Yet, journalists are required to work with fewer resources, tighter deadlines and more pressure than ever before.
Founded in 2015, the Logan Nonfiction Program directly supports nonfiction writers, documentary filmmakers, photojournalists and multimedia creators so they can tell the stories that matter. Our fellows are dedicated to bravely revealing inequality, illuminating untold truths and investigating the most pressing issues of the day through long-form narrative.
Ultimately, the Logan Nonfiction Program helps to equip citizens with the information they need to lead constructive discourse and create sustainable change in our world.
The Logan Nonfiction Program offers two fellowship classes per year—one in the fall (October-December) and one in the spring (February-April).
We welcome between 10-20 nonfiction writers, documentary filmmakers, photojournalists, podcasters and multimedia creators per class. Fellows are provided lodging, meals, workspace, professional guidance and community.
Fellowships range between 5-10 weeks and take place on the Carey Institute for Global Good’s historic 100-acre campus in upstate New York.
The Logan Nonfiction Program accepts applications from:
- Nonfiction writers
- Documentary filmmakers
- Podcasters and radio reporters
- Multimedia creators
Applicants must be at work on a long-form project in order to apply (e.g.: an article, book, film, collection, podcast, etc.).
We do accept applications from academics and non-professional journalists, as long as the intended audience of the project is the general public.
We are particularly interested in supporting projects that examine the most pressing issues of the day, including but not limited to: conflict and security; democracy and governance; education; environment and climate change; food security; gender, race, sexual orientation, disability and intersectionality; globalization; health; inequality and exclusion; media and journalism; social justice; and sustainability and resilience.
Fellows are selected for the program based on the quality, relevance, professional experience and promise of the applicant’s work.
The Logan Nonfiction Program is committed to building a diverse and inclusive class of fellows. The Carey Institute does not discriminate in its programs and activities against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, marital status, ancestry, physical ability or disability, HIV status or veteran status.
The building that houses our residents is wheelchair accessible and does not have stairs. Handrails are in all resident bathrooms. The terrain is hilly and many of our buildings were built in the 1800s; we encourage applicants to reach out to the program manager with any questions or concerns.
