IDA Open Call for Documentary Magazine Editorial Fellows

Funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the Documentary Magazine Editorial Fellowship initiative is designed to enhance opportunities for writers from underserved and underrepresented communities to participate in the editorial planning process at, and contribute content to Documentary magazine, the only US publication dedicated solely to documentaries, available via print and online. This program will, in turn, help IDA to enrich its editorial content, furthering and deepening an ongoing community-wide conversation about the nonfiction form and the issues and themes that are driving the documentary profession. 

The fellowship program, which runs from January through December 2020, will provide stipends of $2,000 each and the opportunity to attend an industry event for four emerging writers.
