Now Accepting Entries for the 2014 J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award.
The Columbia Journalism School's J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award ($30,000) is given annually to aid in the completion of a significant book-length work of narrative nonfiction on a topic of American political or social concern. The committee envisions the award as a way of closing the gap between the time and money an author has and the time and money that finishing a book requires.
Registration and additional information are available on the Lukas Prize Project website http://bit.ly/nc3PUp. Deadline for submissions is December 10, 2013.

Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
