~ Surprise! ~

I’m thinking of launching a long-form writing fellowship.

8-10 brilliant minds.

Everybody would write a world-class essay on a topic of their choice.

Each fellow would receive mentorship, professional editing, and special access to domain experts.

Any interest?


There’s more interest than I expected.

If you’d like to participate, please fill out this form.

Space is limited, but we will give extra consideration to people who share their interest early.


We’re doing it!

The program will run from January - April 2020.

Applications are due by October 31st.


Each fellow will publish a 10,000 word essay on the topic of their choice.

Participants will work for 5-10 hours per week. They’ll use the time to write, research and refine their essays.

We’ll also meet as a group for 1 hour per week.

The program is for advanced writers only.
