The Economist is seeking applicants for two paid fellowships in America. Each fellow will spend six months as a journalist working with our New York and Washington bureaus, writing articles about politics and policy in the United States. Previous experience in journalism is not necessary, but applicants should possess a love of writing, inquiry and debate. We welcome all applicants regardless of ethnic origin, national origin, gender, race, religious beliefs, disability, sexual orientation or age. Applicants should send an original unpublished article of up to 600 words suitable for publication in The Economist’s United States section and a CV to email@example.com by October 30th.
If there are any questions, I am happy to answer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
