Monday Markets/Jobs/Opportunities for Writers

  • Oh, is this one, from the Centre d’Art – Marnay Art Centre (CAMAC), tempting! “CAMAC and Fondation Ténot offer each year a residency bursary to one visual artist, one writer and one musician or composer in order to create new career prospects for artists.” The bursary includes a 2-month residency at CAMAC (France). The creative-writing bursary is open to “established poets, novel writers and playwrights.” There is no application fee. Deadline: July 14, 2012.
  • Going on the job market? You could receive free CV and résumé critique from the experts at The Chronicle of Higher Education: “This summer, the CV Doctor would like to help two candidates with their CV and résumé. Many of you may have been on the academic job market before, and, in uncertain times, you may be widening the range of job possibilities you’re considering. So, we would like to help you understand the differences between these two documents, and how to make them effective for different audiences.” They’d like to feature “an M.F.A. looking for a faculty position and for an arts administrative position.” You have until July 9 to submit your documents. Go!
  • California writers! Poets & Writers, Inc.,  is currently accepting submissions for the California Writers Exchange Awards program, which “introduces emerging writers from California to the New York literary community and provides them a network for professional advancement. Every third year, writers in California are invited to submit manuscripts. Judges review the entries and select a winning poet and fiction writer.

Deadline is August 31, 2012, and there’s no application fee.
