Galen Williams Fellows, 2017-18

Applications for the 2017-18 Galen Williams Fellowship Program are now being accepted. Poets & Writers offers part-time, paid fellowships in three areas: Editorial, Online Editorial, and Readings & Workshops. All three positions are in our NYC office.

The goal of the Fellowship Program is to nurture the next generation of leaders for the literary field. Fellows provide valuable support as well as fresh insight and creativity to our team while getting an in-depth introduction to work at a nonprofit literary organization. These positions are perhaps best suited to graduate students and those who have recently completed a graduate degree; however, all qualified and motivated candidates will be considered. 

Fellows will work twenty hours per week for forty weeks from September 2017 through June 2018. Exact start date and hours are somewhat flexible. Please download the job descriptions and application instructions, below. The application deadline is Monday, June 19.
