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).
“The Freeman is now accepting poetry submissions to be considered for publication in the print magazine and online. Each issue is thematic, so please consult the schedule below for the theme(s) for which we are currently accepting submissions. We will give preference to poetry that relates to the theme.
