This from our fabulous FC west correspondent Molly Samuel. She's happy to chat with anyone who has questions – contact her at email@example.com.
Middlebury Fellowship in Environmental Journalism is accepting applications until May 16. The program accepts 10 journalists at the start of their careers, and works with them for a year-long reporting project (plus sessions with visiting journalists, a retreat in Bread Loaf in the fall and Esalen in the spring). I was a 2009 fellow, and recommend the program highly. I'm happy to talk with anyone about it, and the fellowship directors are also open to questions.
