The National Book Critics Circle is launching an NBCC Emerging Critics program that aspires to identify, nurture and support the development of a new generation of book critics.

 We are seeking a broad and diverse range of applicants. As we build an annual class of critics, we will be selecting those who have demonstrated a genuine interest and commitment to engaging in critical conversation about books in all genres.

 Over the course of the one-year fellowship, critics will receive:

      -Dues-free membership to the NBCC.

      -An opportunity to partake in the ongoing conversation about the craft of reviewing, and ethical questions and concerns emerging as the publishing landscape changes.

     -Active mentorship from members of the Emerging Critic Initiative committee, as well as other Board members. This includes editing advice on drafts as well as counsel regarding career development.

     -Access to NBCC blog Critical Mass, as contributors to weekly-roundup.

     -Admission to NBCC events, and annual reception.

 To apply:  Please submit resume, three writing examples, a 300-500-word statement of purpose, and names/contact information for two references.

 Applications due: January 27, 2017

 Announced: By March 1, 2017 (for March 15, 2016-March 15, 2017 term.)
