Jessica McAllen awarded Peter M Acland Journalism Fellowship

The Fellowship, which is in its second year, enables a New Zealand journalist to work overseas at a media organisation of international repute at no cost to the recipient’s employer or host by covering the recipient’s salary, travel and accommodation. On return, the Fellow is expected to share the knowledge and skills acquired with the Fellow’s colleagues and the wider industry.

Ms McAllen leaves in a fortnight to spend 12 months at The Baffler magazine in New York. The Baffler is a print and digital magazine which focuses on cultural, political, and business analysis and reporting.

Ms McAllen says the Fellowship is an “extraordinary learning opportunity”.

“The Baffler tends to take a wider, nuanced view of social issues in a time when we are often rushing to quickly form opinions.”

Ms McAllen will spend her time researching and writing for the print and digital magazine.
The Fellowship recognises the career of the late Peter Acland as a journalist and his passion for the profession.
