Ends on June 1, 2017

Interested in learning more about small press publishing from the inside? We're offering a one-year publishing fellowship. Fellows will work mainly on the Writing Pittsburgh project, but will also have the opportunity to work on other CNF projects including the magazines and other books, and because CNF is a small nonprofit organization, the fellow will also have the opportunity to learn about everything—not just the editorial work—that goes into publishing a book (and magazines), from marketing to distribution to event planning.

The publishing fellowship requires a 15 hour per week commitment starting in September 2017 and ending in August 2018 and comes with an stipend of $5,000, paid over the year. The fellow will work in Creative Nonfiction's Pittsburgh office.

The fellowship is open to anyone; we’re happy to work with current students who might be eligible to get course credit, but we’re equally open to working with non-students.

To apply, you'll need to upload a one-page resume; a thoughtful and well-written one- to two-page cover letter introducing yourself and explaining your qualifications and your motivations for wanting to learn more about literary publishing; and contact information for three professional references. 

Deadline for applications is June 1, 2017. We will conduct interviews in June/July and will award the fellowship by July 15.
