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. The 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.)


Markets & Jobs for Writers

Don’t worry—it’s not Monday yet! These posts usually go out on Mondays, but with the Yom Kippur holiday starting at sunset on Sunday, September 27, I’m sending this one early (admittedly–I didn’t intend to send it THIS early—glitch!). I’ll be offline for the holiday from sunset, Sunday, September 27, until after sunset Monday evening. I’ll address any comments thereafter.

Also! Expect a heaping helping of calls and contests to arrive in the October issue of The Practicing Writer, which will go out to subscribers on Wednesday. In the meantime, give one more glance to the still-open opportunities listed in the September edition.
