We are thrilled to announce that The Kelly Initiative will be launching its inaugural editorial fellowship on Nov. 1st, 2020. This unique endeavor will provide a cohort of 4 emerging fashion/lifestyle writers with the opportunity to hone their editorial chops over a 6-month fellowship within which each will develop content that highlights dynamic Black fashion creatives and/or considers the fashion industry’s evolving socio-political/aesthetic/financial landscape. Over the course of the program, the fellows will each receive a $50/month stipend and endless dynamic enrichment via monthly cohort zooms in which key industry and professional phenomena will be analyzed. The application portal will go live from 9/15/20 through EOD 10/15/20, so set your digital calendars! Applicants will have to submit links to three digitally published pieces (these pieces can be live on a media outlets’ sites, Medium, a personal blog, or even on IG) as well as answer a short, essay-style question about their relationship with writing.
