Monday Markets for Writers: No Fees. Paying Gigs.

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).

  • Okey-Panky is a weekly online magazine of short, darkly comic, ironic, and experimental fiction, essay, poetry, and graphic narrative. We’ll be publishing something new every Monday morning, beginning in February 2015. We will also be open submissions at that time. Writers may submit year-round via submittable. Contributors will be paid $100.” The new magazine is an offshoot from Electric Literature. (via The Review Review)
  • The next Practicing Writer newsletter, typically packed with no-fee competition listings and info on paying opportunities with litmags will be out in time for the New Year. Never too late to subscribe.
  • “Thanks to a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism will launch a summer internship program in June 2015. The purpose of the program is to address under-representation in U.S. newsrooms by helping build a stronger pipeline of academically excellent, digitally trained minority journalists. The Knight-CUNYJ Summer Internship Program will bring 20 aspiring journalists to New York City for two months — June and July — to participate in an all-expenses paid training and internship program. There’s also a competitive component to the program — at the end of the summer, the five top interns will be offered tuition-free enrollment at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, if they apply and are admitted to one of our M.A. programs.” For eligibility and other information, visit the CUNY Journalism School website. (Application deadline: February 16, 2015.)
