Springtide Seeks an Inaugural Writer in Residence

 In Miscellaneous

In addition to our internship program, BIPOC fellowship, and Ambassadors Program, Springtide Research Institute is excited to announce a new way to support and nurture emerging voices in the conversation about young people and religion.  

Our Writer in Residence is 9-month appointment designed to nurture and encourage aspiring writers through one-on-one mentoring, workshopping and feedback, prompts and assignments, and opportunities for skill-building, bylines, networking, and hands-on experience in publishing and production.  

Among other opportunities, this residency explores and enhances competencies in data and report writing, news and blog writing, reflective and essay writing, and newsletter and copywriting. In addition to the prompts and work assigned by Springtide, the Writer in Residence will propose a residency-long project and work with their mentor to outline, draft, and finalize a work. 

Ideal candidates will have a demonstrated interest in writing, especially at the intersection of religion (broadly construed) and public life. Though well-supported and well-resourced, candidates should nonetheless be capable of self-direction, independence, initiative, as it’s a remote position. The residency focuses on writing, but interest in the other hallmarks of Springtide Research Institute’s work are encouraged: sociological research, the inner and outer lives of young people, communicating practical ideas in innovative ways, and so on. Although skill will be a factor when considering candidates for the Writer in Residence, more important is a willingness to learn and grow.
