Academics, Memoirists & Non-Professional Journalists:

We accept applications from academics and non-professional journalists with the requirement that the intended audience of the project is the general public. Memoirists are welcome to apply with projects that address wider themes and include significant reporting outside of the first-person narrative.

International Applicants:

The Logan Nonfiction Program has a long tradition of internationalism and welcomes applicants from around the world. Professionals who work in languages other than English are welcome to apply if they can supply samples of work in translation as well as in the original language. A working knowledge of English is necessary for international applicants. The Logan Nonfiction Program does not provide an interpreter for residents.


Small groups of two to three individuals wishing to work collaboratively are encouraged to apply. Each member of the group will need to submit an individual application.
