Up until November 1, 2021, Shenandoah is accepting applications for its fellowship for BIPOC voices who would love to work in publishing. Now in its second year, the fellowship comes with a $1,000 honorarium, and selected fellows will edit a selection of works, in a genre of their choosing, for an issue of the magazine.

From the announcement:

In order for structural change to happen in the predominantly white publishing industry, innovation must happen at all levels, from the big five book publishers to literary magazines like ours.

We recognize that if we want Black writers, Indigenous writers, and other writers of color to feel at home in Shenandoah, and for the literature we publish to be full of varied and passionate perspectives that enliven, empower, and engage all of us, we need to have representation at our core.”
