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.

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick updates from my desk.

1. Looking forward to speaking today with a private group of writers (who are participating in a fellowship program) about getting their work published.

2. And looking forward to talking more about writing and publishing (in a specifically Jewish context) for Drisha Institute tomorrow (this one is open to the public, if you’re interested in joining).

3. I really don’t have any words I can share (other than #EnoughIsEnough) concerning yesterday’s horrific news from Uvalde, Texas. But as I texted my friend Rachel Hall, I found myself thinking of some of her recent short fiction, much of which deals with guns and gun violence. And last night, I reread one of her stories, “After,” which was published in Blackbird in 2020.
