Applicants must be at work on a long-form project in order to apply (e.g.: an article, book, film, podcast, etc.). The project must be wholly nonfiction and rely on in-depth interviews and original research for sourcing. 

Application Deadline

Finalists’ applications are presented to the Logan Nonfiction Program Advisory Board for their review and approval. Once a class has been approved by the Advisory Board, successful applicants will be notified in writing and provided with registration information and a finalized schedule.
