Citizen Literary Fellowship

The Citizen Literary Fellowship is grounded in our belief that while diversity in the books and authors we publish is vital, it is equally important that the people publishing these books reflect that diversity. The fellowship is intended to attract candidates who otherwise would not have access to publishing, and to therefore increase the diversity and inclusivity of the industry.

Throughout the year, the fellow will receive active coaching and encouragement from the whole Graywolf team. Our hope is that this fellowship will serve as a doorway to a successful career in publishing or a related literary field.

It is a part-time (24 hours per week), non-exempt, ten-month position starting in February 2021. Compensation includes $25,000 (paid twice monthly as regular wages), paid time off, and health and dental insurance.

The 2021 Citizen Literary Fellowship will extend from February through November 2021, and the fellow will work remotely. The application period is now closed. We hope to fill the position and notify all applicants by Friday January 15.
