The North American Guild of Beer Writers, along with support from CraftBeer.com, is now accepting applications for the third year of its Diversity in Beer Writing Grant. The goal of this grant is to highlight the value of stories that can showcase diversity and inclusion – in all its forms and challenges – within beer. To best align with this goal, and to support a growing collection of writers that have not traditionally been represented covering the beer industry, those who identify as female, minorities, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply. The winner of the grant will receive a cash stipend for completed work, which will be published on CraftBeer.com, a website for beer lovers published by the Brewers Association. From now through Jan. 24, applications can be submitted online using this form. Interested writers must provide a cover letter, two samples of work, and a pitch for their story idea that explores areas of diversity and inclusion in beer. A writer’s level of experience and previous outlets of publication will not be the determining factor in a successful application. Previous coverage does not have to include the beer industry – an emphasis is placed on uniqueness of pitch and storytelling, not an intimate knowledge of beer.
