The American Independent News Network is currently accepting applications from journalists based in the Tampa Bay area for a fellowship with The Florida Independent.

The term of the fellowship is three months, with the possibility of renewal once the term expires. Fellows must have an intimate knowledge and understanding of politics and issues within the state, particularly of the Tampa Bay area. Proficiency in Spanish is a plus.

Fellows selected to participate in the program will generate “impact journalism,” reporting that demonstrably affects the public debate and advances the public good. This goal will be achieved through a combination of aggressive investigative reporting and tenacious, insightful blogging.

Applicants are judged on the quality of their previous writing; the relevance of their professional background, both past and present; their dedication to the journalistic pursuit of informing the public; and affinity for TFI’s mission.

Details of the fellowship, and the application process, are available for download here:
