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).

  • The deadline is approaching for scholarship applications for Grub Street’s summer classes: May 22 at noon (presumably noon, Boston time).
  • Reminder re: Wag’s Revue: “Open reading periods are held from the beginning of March through the end of May and from the beginning of September through end of November. Submissions are currently open….Wag’s Revue compensates its writers $100 per piece (interview, poem or group of poems, essay, or short story).”
  • A list of “10 Literary Journals That Pay Their Writers.” Many of the titles included will be familiar to those who follow this blog and/or subscribe to our newsletter.
  • “Each year, between four and six $1,000 fellowships are awarded to emerging (unpublished or minimally published) translators to help them pay for hotel and travel expenses to the annual ALTA conference. At the conference, ALTA Fellows are invited to read their translated work at a keynote event, giving them an opportunity to present their translations to an audience of translators, authors, and publishers from around the world.” No application fee. Deadline: July 1, 2014. (Thanks to CRWROPPS-B for reminding me about this one.)
  • “Bard College seeks an established writer for a three-year half-time position in fiction as a Writer in Residence in the Written Arts program….Candidates must have at least one published book of fiction, an MFA or the equivalent, teaching experience, and must be committed to the ideals of a small liberal arts college.
  • The Writer’s Center (Bethesda, Md.) seeks a Marketing and Communications Manager.
  • Yale University Press (Conn.) is looking for an Online Marketing Manager.
