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.
