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).

  • “To combat the incredible expense of [New York] City, Ed’s gonna give awesome unpaid mag interns $1,200 to use for living, travel and whatever other expenses. Assuming Ed can raise the dough, there’ll be one lucky whippersnapper each fall and spring semester and two recipients in the summer.” Deadline for summer 2013 applications is May 30. No application fee. Check the details!
  • Richard Hugo House (Seattle) seeks a practicing, published poet to serve as a Writer-in-Residence. No application fee. Deadline: June 3, 2013.
  • Overland [Australia] is seeking fiction from new and emerging writers for a special online edition to be selected by emerging editor, Emily Laidlaw. For this special edition, ‘new and emerging’ describes a writer who has not yet published a book of stories or novel with commercial distribution. Online contributors for this edition will be paid $100 per story. Submissions close midnight, Monday 3 June. The special winter issue will be published in early July.” (h/t @femministas)
  • Two calls for submissions from Canada-based Descant. First, for a graphic literature issue, the magazine “welcomes cartooned strips, panels, and stories that address any topic and investigate the possibilities and boundaries of the medium. Traditional essays, poems, memoirs and fiction that deal in some way with comics and cartooning will also be accepted.” Deadline for this issue is June 7, 2013. There’s an August 16 deadline for work to be considered for a Berlin-themed issue. Pays: “Descant pays a $100 honourarium upon publication.” Note: “No submission may be under consideration by another publisher, nor can it have been previously published.”
  • The Center for Fiction (New York) is looking for a Development Manager.
  • “Words without Borders seeks an Education Editor to participate in the creation and launch of its education site, Words without Borders Campus. The Education Editor will work with WWB’s magazine staff and education committee to identify content from our archive, commission and edit supplementary material for high school and undergraduate use related to the various units, and develop the Web site. This is a part-time freelance position with the possibility of transitioning to full-time.” NB: This appears to be a work-from-home position.
  • From Syracuse University (N.Y.): “The Rene Crown University Honors Program seeks a Part-Time instructor to teach a course in ‘Poetry for the People’ for the Fall, 2013 semester.”
