About the Fellowship

The Blue Club is an independent women-led media organisation. As a part of our fifth-anniversary program, we are launching The Blue Club Media Fellowship For Writers 2020, one-of-a-kind opportunity for women and queer people belonging to marginalised communities to develop their writing skills.

Looking for similar opportunities, join Opportunity Cell on Instagram or Telegram here.

It’s a three-month intensive writing fellowship which aims to identify, mentor and empower emerging, diverse voices in anti-casteist and feminist spaces. The program will be led by The Blue Club core team and will aim to encourage and amplify new, intersectional voices in the contemporary anti-casteist movement, one that welcomes complex arguments and refuses to ignore the contradictory and often uncomfortable realities of gender and sexuality amongst ourselves.
