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).
Hurry, hurry! “Grub Street is pleased to offer $200.00 scholarships to twenty selected writers each year. Recipients may use their scholarship at any time in the year and toward any class they desire, though not for Muse and the Marketplace tuition or manuscript consulting. There are 4 application deadlines throughout the year– one in each term. We’ll give out 5 scholarships after each deadline.” Scholarship applications for Summer 2013 must be e-mailed by Wednesday, June 12th at 12:00pm (remember that Grub Street is in Boston, folks, though they’ve recently added online classes).
“The Department of English and Modern Languages at Oxford Brookes University [U.K.] seeks to appoint a new member of staff [part-time Lecturer] in Creative Writing.”
“Witness is now accepting submissions of photo essays for our Summer and Winter online issues. All submissions will be considered for both issues, but you must submit before June 22, 2013 to be considered for the Summer issue. Submit a photo essay of 5-10 photos in jpeg format with a detailed caption for each, including time and place of capture. All images must be previous unpublished, either in print or online. Contributors will be paid $250.00 for each selected photo essay and may have a photograph from the essay featured as the online issue’s cover image.” (h/t The Review Review)
The Quirk Books “Looking for Love” Fiction Contest is “accepting submissions for novel-length manuscripts featuring fresh, fun, and strikingly unconventional love stories. Boy meets girl, girl meets girl, girl meets shark, shark meets pirate – anything goes.” Grand prize includes $10,000 and publication by Quirk Books. There is no entry fee. Deadline: October 1, 2013.
