Announcing a special opportunity for food writers
Applications open February 4 for our Food Writers Intensive
Calling all food writers! We are about to embark on a co-creative program to support and incubate emerging food writers who want to take their publications to the next level.
Next week, we will open applications for our Food Writers Intensive, a short-form fellowship program in which 10 writers will collectively define how food writing can thrive on Substack.
The Intensive will run from April to June. Fellows will receive:
A suite of services
Mentorship from seasoned food writers
Expert coaching and insights from the Substack team
Applications will open on February 4 and close on February 28. We’re looking for applicants who have an original take on food, culture, and adjacent narratives. A panel of Substack food writers will independently judge applications.
You should apply if:
You’ve been writing about food on Substack for at least three months
Your publication is written in English (If your publication is bilingual, it includes English)
You have at least 500 subscribers on Substack or a following elsewhere you feel you can cultivate as readers
You are available in April, May, and June to join regular group sessions and contribute actively to online conversations
You’re committed to building your Substack over the long term
You’re a community-minded person with an interest in sharing knowledge with fellow writers down the line
More details to come when the application launches next week.
