Monday Markets for Writers

Monday 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).

  • Black Balloon Publishing has news for novelists and short-story writers: “We’re thrilled to announce the Horatio Nelson Fiction Prize, an award for a previously completed manuscript which comes with an award of $5,000 and a Black Balloon Publishing deal. Submissions for entry will be accepted between April 1 and May 6th. Only complete, previously unpublished works of fiction of over 50,000 words will be eligible. Please submit an excerpt of up to 4,000 words in a .doc or .docx file between April 1 and May 6th.” There is no entry fee. (via GalleyCat)
