Markets and Jobs for Writers

Each week in this space, Practicing Writing shares no-fee, paying markets for writers of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction: competitions, contests, and calls for submissions. These weekly posts complement monthly issues of The Practicing Writer newsletter, where you’ll always find more listings, none of them limiting eligibility to residents of a single municipality, state, or province. (But this blog does share those more localized opportunities, including jobs.)

As always, if you’d like to share a specific opportunity listed here, please credit the blog for the find. Thanks for respecting the time and effort that I put into researching, curating, and posting this information! I do notice, and I appreciate the courtesy.

Toward the end of each week, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.

Settle in, everyone. There’s a lot to share here this week.

Current Jewish Writing Opportunities

A couple of these have been cross-posted in the latest issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0, which features only fee-free calls and competitions that also pay for winning/published work. But since the pool of opportunities that explicitly seek Jewish writing isn’t large, I don’t limit the listings here on My Machberet that way.

A couple more preliminaries: As always, read all submission guidelines carefully. Remember that for a variety of reasons, not every opportunity will be appropriate for every writer. And find more Jewish-writing resources here on the site.

On to the listings!
