What We Do

Building Capacity

Project Word helps diverse writers to publish or broadcast their work in a range of media. With our stable of professional editors, we provide selected writers with whatever they need to succeed: help strengthening proposals, introductions to editors, any necessary coaching, or logistical help. In limited cases we support story development.

Funded by individual donors and foundations, Project Word serves writers and editors gratis. Where possible, we provide writers with stipends to cover proposal expenses—or provide referrals for support from other sources. Support for expenses cannot be guaranteed.

We deal mostly in long-form narrative journalism but will consider other forms of writing that meet our writers' guidelines.
