Open City: Call for Creative Nonfiction Fellows (NY, NY)

Open City is a new online magazine on Asian American news and culture in New York.

In a time when Occupy Wall Street is shedding a harsh light on economic inequality, Open City offers a unique platform for writers to tell the stories low-income Americans too often ignored or misrepresented. If you’re an emerging creative nonfiction writer looking for financial support, a workspace and career mentorship, apply to become a Creative Nonfiction Fellow. You’ll help us document the rapidly growing, transforming and challenging experience of what it means to be Asian American in urban New York today.
