Monday Markets/Jobs/Opportunities for Writers

Monday brings the weekly batch of no-fee contests/competitions and paying gigs for those of us who write (especially those of us who write fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction).

  • First up: ArtsFwd is looking for two Blogging Fellows, who “will be expected to contribute posts of 500 to 800 words twice monthly for a four month term about topics including the process of innovation, adaptive leadership, and new thinking about organizational change in the arts, with a focus on models of success. Fellows will also be expected to monitor comments on their posts and respond as appropriate. Topics for posts will be selected and edited in collaboration with the EmcArts staff, and may include analysis of sector trends and current events, interviews with arts leaders and non-arts innovators, book reviews, and roundups of news and events.” Pays: “Blogging Fellows will be paid as freelancers at a rate of $50 per post. If Fellows have an existing blog, cross-posting content generated for ArtsFwd is allowed and encouraged. Following the successful completion of their term, Fellows will be welcome to continue writing for ArtsFwd on an ad hoc basis. The position is not office based: candidates from all over the United States are encouraged to apply.” Apply by September 17, 2012.
