The Bitch Media Fellowships for Writers ($2000 Stipends)

We’re pleased to announce that the 2021 Bitch Media Fellowships for Writers applications are now open! A series of three-month intensive writing fellowships, the goal is to develop, support, and amplify emerging voices in feminist media. All fellows will work under the guidance of Bitch cofounder Andi Zeisler.

Fellows will work in one of four subject areas during their fellowship period:

Sexual politics

Pop-culture criticism


Global feminism


  • Produce at least one longform article to be published in the quarterly magazine Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture.
  • Participate in regular discussions (by Zoom) with the fellowship director and other members of the Bitch Media staff.
  • Receive mentorship and support in creating, shaping, and editing articles and online pieces.
  • Receive follow-up support with placing future articles and essays, and make great connections within the feminist-media community.
  • Receive a $2,000 stipend for the three-month fellowship.


You are strongly encouraged to apply:

  • If you are a writer who has minimal publication experience
  • If you are passionate about one of the above subject areas but do not have a history of writing or blogging about them.
  • If you are a writer still figuring out what subjects obsess you.
  • This fellowship was created in order to cultivate and amplify new voices.

DEADLINE: June 30, 2020.
