Promundo Opens New Writing Fellow Application
May 8, 2019
Today, Promundo announces its call for the first-ever Promundo Writing Fellows (PWF) cohort. For one year, this diverse group of individuals will contribute their perspectives on healthy masculinities in an effort to promote gender equality and create a world free from violence.
In bringing together a cohort of thoughtful writers, while centering the voices of young men, young women, and young people of all gender identities, LGBTQIA+ folks, people of color, and individuals at the intersections of these identities, the PWFs will create a collection of stories, drawing on news, culture, and data that will amplify a spectrum of voices and evolving perspectives around healthy masculinity.
Who Should Apply
Promundo invites writers and advocates alike to apply to join the 2019-2020 Promundo Writing Fellows cohort. The ideal candidate is interested in reimagining the future of positive masculinities and discussing men’s roles in advancing gender equality, all while engaging with Promundo’s groundbreaking research along with pop culture, politics, personal experiences, and anything in between.
How It Works
Promundo Writing Fellows will contribute short-form pieces to a newly launched Medium collection. Each piece may be pitched independently to Promundo staff and/or written in response to a call for stories around a particular topic or piece of research. Members of the cohort may also have opportunities to work with Promundo in additional ways, such as through engagement in campaigns or events. All writing fellows will be compensated for their published stories.
PWFs will be selected based upon their ability to provide a valuable and unique perspective to Promundo’s communications, to author high-quality content, and to meaningfully contribute to the US and global dialogue on healthy, positive masculinities and on men’s roles in achieving gender equality.
Applications close June 30, 2019. Selected candidates will be notified via email by July 31, 2019.
