Journalists interested in mass incarceration issues can apply for this fellowship.

PEN America will select six writers to focus on the stories of incarcerated individuals, their families, communities and the wider impact of the criminal justice system.

Starting in September, fellows will work on their projects and meet with mentors. They will also participate in two cohort meetings: the first in October 2018 and the second in February 2019. The projects must be completed by May 2019.

Fellows will receive US$10,000 and may request up to US$5,000 for travel and research, in addition to mentorship.

The deadline is July 1.
