About Us

Founded in 1990, The American Prospect is devoted to promoting informed discussion and debate on public-policy matters from a progressive perspective. Through narrative interpretation of complex issues, we seek to propagate the ideas and the analyses necessary to support an informed discourse. We don’t just make magazines, we make a difference.

The American Prospect hosts paid internships, publishes freelance writers, and employs full-time up-and-coming journalists with our renowned writing fellowship.

The American Prospect's Writing Fellows Program is "the best entry-level job in journalism," according to former fellow Ezra Klein.

Alumni include Jamelle Bouie, Dana Goldstein, Josh Marshall, Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias, Adam Serwer, Jedediah Purdy, Kate Sheppard, and Rachel M. Cohen.

"No other position boasts the writing fellowship's track record in turning enthusiastic young journalists into well-respected, widely read policy thinkers." — Dana Goldstein

"The American Prospect Writing Fellowship is by far the best opportunity for young progressive writers out there. If it didn't exist, I'd probably be a highly paid lawyer today." — Matthew Yglesias
