Markets and Jobs for Writers

Background of a keyboard, mug of coffee, and wallet on a tabletop; text label indicating "Markets and Jobs for Writers: No fees to submit work/apply. Paying gigs only."

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.

Words of the Week: UConn Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Life

“As professors in the humanities and social sciences, our work hinges on our attention to nuance and commitment to critical thinking. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is complex, and its historical, religious, and emotional roots run deep. To make declarations about this conflict by fiat, and to do so using inadequate historical framing and inflammatory language, is not consonant with our professional values.”
