1. News Fellow:
The news fellow will work full-time, making daily contributions to Grist’s editorial operations including (but not limited to) reporting, research, story ideas, writing, and creative experiments. You will be expected to write quick news updates, reported stories, and one mini-feature a month. You will also identify a long-term special project to produce in collaboration with others on the team. They will encourage full participation in staff discussions and meetings, seek input on issues large and small, and laugh politely (or heartily, depending on the circumstances) at all your jokes.
The news fellow can elect to work out of Grist’s Seattle office or work remotely. Fellow must make a six-month commitment. The fellowship pays $2,750 per month. In special cases the fellowship will be renewable once by mutual agreement between the fellow and Grist. Renewal candidates will be considered alongside the applicant pool for the next fellowship cycle.
