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).

  • Baltimore Review‘s current submission period ends November 30. Open to fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. Pays: “Payment for non-contest submissions is Web exposure, a copy of the annual compilation in which the author’s work appears, and a small payment ($40 Amazon gift certificate or $40 through PayPal, if preferred).”
  • The Wax Poetry and Art Under 25 Poetry Contest is open to residents of Canada (and non-residents) under 25 years of age. Prize: “$50 CAD, to be paid after publication.” NB: “Top entries not winning First Place will be offered publication as regular submissions in Axil Poetry and Art (a publication dedicated to publishing work by people under 25). Regular submissions do not pay and you are under no obligation to accept.” No simultaneous submissions. No entry fee. Deadline: December 4, 2016.

  • “The Seattle Times, a family-owned, Pulitzer-Prize winning media company, is looking for a temporary music writer who can provide outstanding coverage of the vibrant Pacific Northwest music scene while keeping atop of national trends.”

  • From Brooklyn College/CUNY: “The Department of English invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Associate or Full Professor in the teaching of the craft of fiction, both in the Master of Fine Arts in Fiction program and in the undergraduate B.F.A. Candidates should be familiar with the expanded canon and in teaching a diversity of approaches, including experimental fiction. We are particularly interested in applicants whose work reflects an interest in inter-cultural contacts/conflicts/reconciliations.”
