Monday Markets for Writers

dollar-sign-mdMonday 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).

  • Reminder from Rattle: “Our fall issue will be dedicated to Poets of Faith—and by that we mean poets who are adherents to a specific religious faith tradition. In a slight revision to the guidelines, the poems themselves need not be about faith, so long as the poet qualifies. After reading an early batch of submissions, we realized that your spirituality will be embodied somehow in your poetry, even if that’s not what you’re writing about explicitly, and it’s much more interesting to explore the subtle ways that faith affects the work.” Rattle now pays $50 plus a one-year subscription. Deadline: April 15.
  • “In partnership with The Paris Review, the Standard, East Village is pleased to announce its second Writer-in-Residence. For the first three weeks in July 2014, the Standard, East Village will provide a room free of charge to a writer who has a book under contract and needs three weeks of solitude in downtown New York City.” This opportunity “is open to writers of prose or poetry, fiction or nonfiction.” No application fee. Deadline: May 1, 2014.
  • “Antioch College, an independent, selective liberal arts college located in Yellow Springs, Ohio, invites applications for a three-month teaching fellowship in Fiction for Summer 2014. The Summer Teaching Fellow will teach two courses in his/her area of expertise, including one workshop-style creative writing seminar (LIT 250) and one course intended to offer undergraduate students an introduction to the genre (LIT 242).”
  • From “We’re out of Success Stories! Have a Freelance Success Story to share? We pay $40 on acceptance, non-exclusive electronic rights only. Success stories run around 300 words but we’re very flexible. Our guidelines are here:”
  • “The coordinator for the Science Writing Program in the Advanced Academic Programs at Johns Hopkins University will help direct a new online/low-residency Master of Arts in Science Writing and Graduate Certificate in Science Writing. The coordinator’s position is a part-time faculty job, with duties including teaching courses, advising students, identifying adjunct faculty, reviewing applications, growing the program, and handling administrative duties. The online / low-residency program in Science Writing is partnered with the existing AAP M.A. in Writing Program, which has offered an onsite concentration in Science-Medical Writing for 20 years. Over time, the new degree and certificate are expected to replace that concentration. This position requires an ability to work onsite on a regular basis at Hopkins campuses in Baltimore and Washington, although most students and some adjunct instructors will be located nationwide. The coordinator will be expected to direct and, in many cases, attend or teach at the program’s onsite residencies in Baltimore, Washington, and other locations.”
  • The Brooklyn Public Library is looking for a Manager of Adult Programs.
  • The Office of the Manhattan Borough President seeks a Managing Editor, Web and Reports.
  • Perkins School for the Blind (Mass.) is advertising for a General Assignment Writer.
