Citizen Literary Fellowship

Application period for 2023-2024 Citizen Literary Fellowship is now closed** 

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 face barriers to beginning a career in 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 extending from September 2023 through June 2024. 

Opportunity Summary

The Citizen Literary Fellowship is a paid, comprehensive ten-month fellowship designed to support a person who is interested in learning more about the publishing industry through an introductory, hands-on experience. Through substantial project-based work in the editorial and marketing/publicity departments, the fellow will gain a broad base in publishing and be prepared to launch or further a career in the field. There are no requirements regarding the educational background of the candidate, but this position is not intended for those attending school full time.
