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).

  • For Book Lovers, an anthology to be published by Seal Press, editor Shawna Kenney is looking for “steamy stories—both real and imagined—with a bookish bent. We want them now and we want them well-written. Send me your well-crafted fiction, creative nonfiction and illustrated stories of hetero, homo and bisexual romantic encounters connecting literature to libido.” Reprints will be considered. Pays: $50. Deadline: July 1, 2013. (via Writing Career)
  • TriQuarterly will remain open for submissions until July 15. “TriQuarterly welcomes submissions of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, short drama, and hybrid work. We also welcome short-short prose pieces….We especially are interested in work that embraces the world and continues, however subtly, the ongoing global conversation about culture and society that TriQuarterly pursued from its beginning in 1964. TriQuarterly pays honoraria for creative work.”
  • The Kentucky Foundation for Women is looking for a Retreat and Residency Program Administrator.
  • Writer-in-Residence: Writers in the Schools (WITS), a program of Seattle Arts & Lectures, is looking for creative writers—poets, fiction writers, creative nonfiction writers, cartoonists/graphic novelists, and playwrights—who are passionate about teaching the power and pleasure of writing to young people and who are excited to collaborate with public school teachers. Employment is part-time. Residency contracts vary, but typically extend for nine months from October to June. A school-year commitment is typically required.” No application fee. Deadline: August 2, 2013.
  • Another opportunity in Seattle: Clarion West Writers Workshop is hiring an Executive Director.
  • SF Weekly (San Francisco) seeks a Staff Writer.
