If you’re interested in applying, please send a cover letter to nehmat@thewire.in highlighting a story you’ve written that’s most important to you – it could be the one you’re most proud of or one that you wish you could have improved on (and do tell us why).

Preference will be given to women, Dalits and Adivasis.
