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).

  • From “Entertainment and pop culture magazine A Bard’s Tales (Canada) is looking for contributing writers. Payment: $50 for features, $50 for reviews, and $25 for opinion pieces. All pieces must be first pitched (lead to the story, possible sources, rough length, etc) and approved by one of the ABT editors. Deadline: Open.”
  • Attention, writers in Washington state. “Fellowships award $7,500 to practicing professional artists of exceptional talent and demonstrated ability. The Fellowship is a merit-based, not a project-based award. Recipients present a Meet the Artist Event to a community in Washington State that has little or no access to the artist and their work. In 2014, in addition to 14 Fellowship recipients, one artist each in the Literary and Music disciplines will receive a one-month residency at the Millay Colony in New York and a $1,000 stipend.” Apply by January 13, 2014. No application fee.
  • Coming soon (very soon!): the January 2014 issue of The Practicing Writer. If you’re not yet a subscriber, it’s certainly not too late to have this free resource delivered directly to your e-mailbox.
  • The National Trust for Historic Preservation (Washington) is advertising for a Public Affairs Manager (Blogger Outreach). The organization is also inviting applications for a paying editorial internship position.
  • Also in Washington: “The American Poetry Museum is looking for thoughtful, creative, and reliable individuals to lead poetry workshops through our youth education program….This position is part-time and hourly. Educators are paid $25/hr and workshops are an hour long; educators typically between cover 2-8 workshops a week. Hours are flexible; workshops occur both during the school day and after school Monday-Friday.”
  • “Lambda Legal seeks a full-time Associate Editor in its Education and Public Affairs Department to support the Content and Editorial Director in producing print and digital publications in both English and Spanish.” This job is in New York.
