Monday 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."

The weekly batch of no-fee, paying competitions, contests, and calls for submissions—plus jobs for those of us who write (especially those of us who write fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction). These posts are intended to complement/supplement 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 (this blog, on the other hand, does sometimes include those more restricted opportunities).

Friday Finds for Writers

Description: closed trunk and text label announcing, "Finds for Writers."

Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.

  • A thread on the titling of books, sparked by Elizabeth McCracken. (And from my archive: more thoughts on this subject.)
  • “Beyond the Behemoths: In 2019, Small Presses Are Publishing Some of the Best Fiction Out There”—by Laurie Muchnick, fiction editor for Kirkus Reviews.
  • This week brought news of “The Draft, an advice column about writing and life from Eileen Pollack, former director of the University of Michigan MFA Program. We’re here to answer your questions about storycraft, writing, and telling the truth in words.” First up: a creative-nonfiction query.
  • Stephen King’s house in Maine is slated to become an archive and writers’ retreat.
  • And if it’s Friday, it’s time for some Jewish-lit links over on the My Machberet blog.

Have a great weekend.
