Uneven Earth Writing Grants

Uneven Earth, a website that hosts articles, interviews, and other information about environmental and social justice conflicts around the world, is offering a writing grant “to fund two articles every month at $100 per article. While anyone can apply, we hope that this funding would go to those who might not otherwise have the ability to find resources to fund their work.”

From the website:

We’re looking for content in any of the following formats:

  • Storytelling and narratives
  • Interviews
  • Reports from the field: stories about research told in an engaging and accessible way
  • Book reviews
  • Opinion pieces
  • Photo essays

And hope to focus on the following issues:

  • Environmental justice
  • Indigenous struggles
  • Rural and peasant struggles
  • Feminist and queer issues
  • Gentrification and urban inequality
  • Social movements and alternative politics
  • Food politics
  • Climate change

We value the contributions that individuals who identify as members of marginalized communities bring to our website. We encourage, among others, Indigenous people, people of colour, disabled people, people identifying as LGBT*QI, women, formerly incarcerated or institutionalized people, immigrants, and people from working class backgrounds to apply. This list is not exhaustive, and we encourage applicants to describe other experiences that have affected them. We also understand that applicants may experience a number of these identities simultaneously in ways that reinforce and complicate their experience. We encourage these individuals to send in a proposal and to describe their unique contributions and perspectives in their applications.
