Work at Westword as a News-Reporting Fellow
James Florio
Would you like to see your own stories on this page? As part of its commitment to covering Denver, Westword is offering a paid news-reporting fellowship, with a start date in August.

Our fellowship program presents an unparalleled opportunity for young writers who wish to pursue a career in local watchdog journalism. Our fellowships are writing and reporting jobs; our fellows don't compile listings, go for coffee or complete research for other writers. Instead, they work intensively with an experienced mentor to produce high-impact locally reported journalism. This is not a remote position: Our office is open, with plenty of space to socially distance.

Our fellowships are six-month jobs that pay $650 per week, with benefits. You can learn more about the program here.

Interested parties should email a cover letter, résumé and writing/reporting samples to:

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
