  • Attention, practicing writers in Maine: “The Individual Artist Fellowships reward artistic excellence, advance the careers of Maine artists and promote public awareness regarding the eminence of the creative sector in Maine.” Application deadline for Literary Arts fellowships is May 13, 2011.

  • I’m still away today (long weekend in my much-missed Massachusetts). So please accept my apologies for the relative brevity of today’s market/job/opportunity listings. If you haven’t yet seen the May Practicing Writer newsletter, which went out to subscribers late last week, you’ll find plenty more (paying) calls for submission and no-fee competitions listed within.

      Hi Erika! Thanks so much for the leads today. As a Maine writer, and emerging artist I appreciated the opportunities listed for folks from Northern New England. We are tucked away
      up here, and sometimes I fear, overlooked.
      I am impressed with the way you strive to present such excellent, fresh leads from all corners of the continent.

      And now, to the applications!

        Thanks, Mihku! Actually, here’s my personal “policy”: For the newsletter, I steer clear of opportunities that are limited to applicants from just one state/province/city. It’s too limiting for the once-a-month international newsletter readership. But for the blog, I post often enough that I think people appreciate the added variety. Or at least, they don’t dislike it too much!

        Good luck with the apps!
