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).

  • Story|Houston, a new journal featuring narratives by emerging writers and illustrations by emerging artists,” is considering submissions for its summer issue. Considers fiction and nonfiction. Pays: $200. (via Ashland MFA News)
  • From Wordrunner eChapbooks: “Poetry, fiction and memoir by several authors will be considered for the fall 2013 e-chapbook anthology, to be published around September 25.” The theme of this e-chapbook is “jobs”: Work (or the lack of it) should be intrinsic to the narrative or poem. We are not interested in detailed job descriptions, but in how jobs impact lives and relationships.” Deadline: August 31, 2013. Pays: $10-$25 for accepted work.
  • The latest issue of The Practicing Writer (packed, as usual, with no-fee contests and paying calls) went out to subscribers this weekend. You can also find it here.
  • “The Department of English at the University of San Diego invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Creative Writing, Poetry Emphasis.”
  • Oklahoma State University is advertising for an Assistant Professor of Creative Writing. “Tenure-track position in Creative Writing-Fiction. 2-2 teaching load beginning August 2014. Appropriate terminal degree, appropriate credentials, significant national publication, and demonstrated teaching excellence required. Additional publication and teaching expertise in creative non-fiction desirable.”

      Dear Erika,

      I’m amazed as usual with all of the opportunities you’ve discovered in the newsletter! I would never have found these on my own. I might not apply or be qualified for most, but it is encouraging to see what is available for emerging writers. They need support and encouragement.

      A big thank you for all the time and effort it takes to perform this service for us!
