Bitch Media, a nonprofit feminist media organization, organizes the Bitch Media Fellowships for Writers.
The program consists of intensive writing fellowships whose goal is to develop, support and amplify emerging, diverse voices in feminist, activist and pop-culture media.
Possible subject areas include reproductive rights and justice, pop-culture criticism, technology and global feminism. The selected participants must produce a minimum of six online articles for Bitch Media in their topic area, in addition to at least one longform article for the magazine Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture.
- Writers who are interested in feminism and social justice can apply for a remote, three-month fellowship;
- Writers who have a minimal publication experience,;
- Persons passionate about one of the above subject areas but without a history of writing or blogging, are strongly encourage to apply;
- Writers still figuring out what subjects obsess them, are also strongly encouraged to apply.
Fellows receive a 2,000 USD stipend for the total duration of the program.
This is not a full-time position, but an independent fellowship designed for writers who want to develop confident, well-rounded voices and are particularly interested in feminist criticism and mission-driven journalism. Fellows may be based globally, and U.S. citizenship or residence is not required to be a fellow. Writers who have contributed to Bitch before will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
