Erika, I love your blog and thank you for providing so much information. I’ve always wondered, how do you find the job and contest information. Do you use some of the posted jobs from the AWP website?
Hi, Erika (I love the way you spell your name! ;-)):
Most of the jobs I find via the sites I’ve linked to in the Jobs for Writers section of this website. I routinely visit HigherEdJobs.com, Chronicle.com, JournalismJobs.com, and a few others.
I try to be very conscientious about crediting the sources for information I didn’t already know about or discover on my own. So in this post, for instance, you’ll see that where I found something thanks to someone else (Lene Gary, Tania Hershman, Duotrope, or the Femministas blog), I’ve indicated and linked to that source. (The Bethesda contest I found while visiting the related Festival site this weekend for another reason.)
Typically, the AWP listings are not a “feeder” source for these write-ups, which is not to say that I don’t recommend consulting them.
Hope that answers your question. And I’m glad that you like the blog so much!
Thanks so much Erika 🙂
I was asking because I was going to become an AWP member and was just curious if the same job postings were used from that site. Also, I’m a current Queens student and will be graduating in May…it’s so good seeing an alum doing well 🙂
From what I’ve seen, AWP relies on some of the same resources I do, so there is likely to be some overlap. But AWP may also have a paid subscription to sources I can’t currently access (like the MLA database), so you’re likely to find things there that you won’t find here.
Congratulations on your impending graduation.
