rabble.ca and the Institute for Change Leaders announce the third annual search for a recipient of the Jack Layton Journalism for Change Fellowship.

This fellowship supports emerging writers and journalists who are passionate and engaged in developing unique voices in social change reporting. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to strengthen media democracy in Canada while affording excellent mentorship and growth for new voices in the Canadian media landscape.

The fellow will develop a work plan with rabble’s editor based on their submitted proposal that will include a combination of news reporting and feature writing, and will participate in story meetings with rabble editors and staff over a period of three months. The successful candidate will be mentored and supported in creating their articles.

The application process requires a cover letter, writing samples, a pitch and your resume. Applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and readers will be encouraged to also have their say in the process with an opportunity for the final shortlist of applicants to showcase some of their best work in an online voting tool. All shortlisted candidates will also be invited to write a (paid) story for rabble.

There is no age requirement to participate.

Applicants must reside in Canada for the duration of the fellowship.

The fellowship pays $3,000.
