Monday Markets for Writers
Monday brings the weekly batch of no-fee competitions/contests, paying submission calls, and jobs for those of us who write (especially those of us who write fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction).
The February issue of The Practicing Writer went out to subscribers late last week. Plenty of no-fee contests and paying calls included there.

Canada-based Arc Poetry Magazine “is looking for submissions of poetry—or prose about poetry—that takes the North as its pole star. We are looking for writing from the North and/or about the North in its many guises. We don’t take the North as a given and encourage submissions that engage with and challenge ideas and histories of the North. We encourage submissions of diverse Northern voices, poetry styles, and languages (submissions in English, French, Inuit languages, Dené, and Cree are welcome; however, submissions in languages other than English should be accompanied by author-approved translations).” Check the site for more guidelines and pay rates.
