DEADLINE Mar 17th: $10,000 fellowships to Columbia Publishing Course

Columbia Publishing Courses's two DSF Fellowships is a $10,000 opportunity that helps students who long to get into the publishing business.

The Columbia Publishing Course, a seventy-four year-old institution that started at Radcliffe College, is widely-regarded as the best training ground for individuals interested in becoming editors and publishers. We can open doors to incredible opportunities and we create a supportive network of publishing professionals and like-minded people who will long be a part of your life.

Daniel Halpern, a famous literary editor for over fifty years, and one of his authors, bestselling novelist Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, approached the Columbia Publishing Course with a wonderful offer. They wanted to create the D'Aprix Sweeney Family Fellowship that would give a full ride–100% tuition, room and board and some spending money–to two students from six HBCUs who wanted to go into publishing. SHSJC students are eligible.

These students had to be upcoming or recent graduates because we want people to be ready to join the job market as soon as the course is over. This is your last semester – what do you want to do with your life?

I was a history major in college with a minor in creative writing. I had a great college experience and wasn't really focused on what came next until my last semester. What, I asked myself then, does come next? I knew I didn't want a grey corporate job. I didn't want to go into banking or insurance or law. I was a creative person and I wanted to do something that engaged me every day, but I also wanted to be paid a decent living in a job that had room for me to grow and eventually be paid more.

Here's what I knew: § I loved to read. § I revered authors. § I liked to write. § I loved college and I didn't want to stop learning, but I didn't want a graduate degree.

Here is what publishing gave me: § A job that paid me to read. § A job that allowed me to get to know writers and celebrities I never, ever thought I would meet. § A job that insisted that I write every day–copy for book jackets, catalogs, sales pitches, you name it! § A job where I learned a great deal from every book we bought for publication, whether it was a biography of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. or an exploration of life in the Arctic Circle.

I found publishing through a circuitous route that was mostly luck. I didn't know about the Columbia Publishing Course. I didn't know there was a way to get amazing training–training that almost certainly can lead to a job if you are smart and energetic.

Now we are once again at a crossroads; America needs to change, to continue diversifying and growing into the country that those of us who love democracy and freedom and equality know this land can be! We need young people to enter the publishing world and help decide which books will be published, which authors will plant seeds in the minds of impressionable children, which will give hope to young adults and which will help the weary rediscover what is important in order to elicit meaningful change in their lives.

You are who we need and, in return, you will be trend-setters and leaders. You will discover poets and artists and storytellers and you will introduce those critically important people to readers the world over. It is hard, rewarding, exciting work. You will never be bored, you will never be alone, because in publishing it truly takes a village, and you will hold books in your hands that might never have been discovered, but for you.

Once all of the students from the six colleges apply and, hopefully, are accepted to the Columbia Publishing Course, Mr. Halpern and a panel of distinguished writers will read all of the material applicants sent in and decide which two candidates will be given a full-ride to the course.

All best wishes,

Shaye Areheart Director The Columbia Publishing Course & The Columbia Publishing Course at Exeter College, Oxfor

The deadline for applying to the Columbia Publishing Course has been extended to March 17th.
