Hey writers! Are you interested in sports journalism?
The APIA sports blog Dat Winning is seeking applicants for the 2017 Dat Winning Fellowship, a program for aspiring Asian/Pacific Islander American writers interested in a career in sportswriting. The program is run in partnership with the Asian American Writers Workshop, VICE Sports, and NBC Asian America.
They're currently accepting applications for the 2017 program, which will run from February to August. Fellows will write and post six stories, as well as one long-form piece with the help of an established mentor. Mentors include Jay Caspian Kang, Andrew Keh, Mina Kimes, Ursula Liang, Sachin Shenolikar and Alex Wong.
The submission deadline was recently extended to December 31. There are no age requirements to apply -- you just have to identify ethnically as Asian/Pacific Islander American. For further information about the fellowship program, and to fill out the online application, head over to Dat Winning.
