Monday Markets for Writers: No Fees, Paying Gigs

dollar-sign-mdMonday 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).

  • From Tin House magazine: “We accept submissions September 1 through May 31, and, as always, our summer and winter issues are not themed. We consider each submission for all upcoming issues regardless of theme. If you wish to be considered for a particular theme, please make a note in your cover letter. We have provided suggested deadlines for each theme issue, but please be aware that these fill up fast, so get your theme-issue submissions in as soon as possible.” For the Spring 2015 issue, the theme is “rejection”: “We are looking for fiction, essays, memoir, poems, and interviews about rejecting or being rejected. Rejection of, or rejection by people, animals, organizations, institutions, belief systems, physical locations, a calling—the theme is open to interpretation. Deadline is September 15, publication date March 1, 2015.”
  • The Bay Area Discovery Museum is accepting proposals for its Artist-in-Residence program: “We invite artists – visual artists, musicians, composers, media artists, architects, poets, scientists, dancer/choreographers, writers, builders, naturalists, puppeteers, storytellers, actors, playwrights, etc. – to propose residencies and projects which support and enhance our 2014-2015 arts program. As outlined below, our arts program is based on quarterly themes. We look to the artists to propose how to best engage with these themes, from the type of residency proposed to its duration. Thus, there is no minimum duration for a residency; projects may take place at any time throughout the course of the 3 month theme.” Proposals are due September 15 for residencies to take place between December 2014-February, 2015 (Theme: Land). No application fee. Pays: “Artists-in-Residence will be supported by stipends starting at $1,000, the exact size of which will be determined by the cost of project not to exceed $20,000.”
  • The Sacrifice Anthology Writing Contest seeks “submissions for inclusion in the upcoming inspirational essay anthology – Sacrifice – What Would You Give? Submit a personal essay about someone who sacrificed for you or for someone else, in whatever style you feel best expresses the story. Tell us what was done and how it impacted you or the person who received the benefit of the sacrifice.” Prizes: for first place, $50 and two copies of the anthology and publication; second place, $30 and two copies of the anthology and publication; third place, $20 and two copies of the anthology and publication. No entry fee. Deadline: September 30, 2014. (h/t CRWROPPS-B)

    Monday Markets for Writers: No Fees, Paying Gigs

    dollar-sign-mdMonday 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).

  • From Interfictions: “We are looking for work that blurs the lines between genres (contemporary realism, mystery, historical, fantasy, speculative fiction, westerns), as well as pieces that bridge fiction and nonfiction, prose and poetry, and other categories.” Deadline for next issue is August 30. Pays: $30/poem and $.10/word for fiction and nonfiction. NB: “We’re also interested in interviews with boundary-crossing artists. Please query if you know someone you’d like to interview, and let us know why you think this person’s work would interest us. We seek interviews of 2000-3000 words, and pay a flat rate of $50/interview.” (h/t WritingCareer.com)
  • Poets & Writers is looking for an Assistant Editor (New York).
  • “TC Jewfolk is hiring an arts and culture columnist….You’ll be expected to cover an average of one cultural event in the Twin Cities per week, and you’ll have a fair amount of freedom to choose what events you think will be most interesting to our readers. The events don’t have to be Jewish community events; in fact, most of them probably won’t be. Instead you’ll be expected to cover local cultural happenings and personalities with a Jewish lens. This could range from a play at the Guthrie, to a Jewish stand-up comedian playing at Acme, to a special Jewish community event like the Christmas Eve ‘Jewbilee,’ or Twin Cities Jewish film festival. We will pay $25 per story, at an average of one per week for a year. This is a great opportunity to build a writing portfolio and get paid to see live theater/music/etc in the Twin Cities!”
  • “The Creative Writing Program at the University of Oregon welcomes applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Fiction. M.F.A., Ph.D., or M.A. in Creative Writing with a specialization in Fiction required.”
  • Two jobs at Oregon State University-Corvallis, both tenure-track Assistant Professorships. One specifies a fiction specialty; the other, nonfiction.
  • “The Department of English at the University of San Diego invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Creative Writing, Creative Non-Fiction Emphasis.”
  • We’re about one week away from the next issue of The Practicing Writer. As always, it will be packed with no-fee contest info and paying submission calls. It’s never too late to subscribe to our free newsletter.
