Monday Markets and Jobs 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).

  • Just out: the May issue of The Practicing Writer, replete with a healthy collection of no-fee, paying opportunities.
  • Also freshly posted: the May issue of Cathy’s Comps and Calls, including lots more no-fee/paying possibilities (especially strong on UK venues).
  • New opportunity: “Beyond Your Blog will consider submissions of both previously published work (assuming you hold the rights) and original content that has not been published elsewhere before.” Pays: “$35 for accepted original pieces (we publish about 4 paid pieces each month); previously published submissions are welcome, but unpaid if accepted.” NB: “The topic of your submission should be related to blogging, with special consideration given to pieces that relate to submitting writing, freelancing, publishing, editing and editors, collaborative websites etc. We love list, essay, reported, and round up posts containing useful information, such as where to submit writing in: specific niches, paying markets, specific formats, or locations. We are also open to interviews (a pitch is fine in this instance). 400-1,000 words is usually fine, but I’ll consider other lengths if a great fit for BYB readers.”
  • And also new: “the new-and-improved, early 2016 edition of Make a Living Writing’s list of websites that pay at least $50 per post.”
  • From Electric Lit: “Want to take a writing class but feeling too broke or otherwise on the fence? Or do you just like winning stuff? We have good news either way: Once a month, we’ll randomly select a winner who will be offered a FREE spot in one of Catapult’s six-week workshops or one-day bootcamps, co–presented by Electric Literature. Classes are held in our shared NYC offices.”
  • “Literary Hub is looking for a full-time intern to join us in our New York offices. This is a paid, full-time position. The internship is four months (June through September, flexible start dates).”
  • The Loft Literary Center [Minnesota] is advertising two temporary, part-time summer education-assistant positions.
  • “The Baruch College Writing Center [New York] anticipates openings for professional writing consultants to join our vibrant and engaged staff of writers and teachers for the Fall 2016 semester. The priority deadline for applications is May 16th, with interviews scheduled throughout June.”
