- Film screenings are held.
- Workshopping with other fellows on a peer-to-peer basis.
- To enhance productivity and attention, access to virtual coworking spaces is available.
- Social hours and informal virtual social spaces, as well as programs focusing on professional and personal well-being.

- Alumnus status among a group of about 240 outstanding nonfiction writers.
Cost of Logan Nonfiction Fellowship Program
- The Logan Nonfiction Program does not charge an application fee. Tuition and residency fees are not required of accepted fellows. A travel stipend is provided to help offset the costs of the fellow’s travel to and from upstate New York.
- The Logan Nonfiction Program welcomes work from the following genres:
- Journalists and nonfiction writers
- filmmakers that specialize in documentaries
- Podcasters and radio reporters are two types of people who work in the media.
- Creators of multimedia.
- To apply, applicants must be working on a long-form project (e.g.: an article, book, film, podcast, etc.). The project must be entirely nonfiction, with sources based on in-depth interviews and original research.
- They are especially interested in projects that look into the most pressing issues of the day, such as conflict and security, democracy and governance, education, the environment, and climate change, food security, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, and intersectionality; globalization; health; inequality and exclusion; media and journalism; social justice; and anarchism.
- They welcome and accept submissions from creators at all phases of the production process, from drafting an outline to finishing a final draft, or from storyboarding a story to finishing a final cut. They require that fellows commit to a plan of action for what they aim to accomplish throughout the program, regardless of where they are in the process (with the understanding that the work plan may be revised following the commencement of the fellowship and first expert mentoring session.)
