Markets & 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.)

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!

Finds for Writers

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

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

  • Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.” Which is tomorrow!
  • Want to read a “deliriously wonderful publishing story”? Check Anne Trubek’s take on the success of Deesha Philyaw and her short-story collection, published by West Virginia University Press. (Scroll down to the midpoint of the newsletter for this story.)
  • I loved this piece by Cathi Hanauer about rereading Judy Blume’s books—I’m a few years younger than Hanauer, but plenty in the piece resonated.
  • “W.W. Norton has stopped shipping and promoting Blake Bailey’s biography of Philip Roth following allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against the author by a number of women. On Monday, Bailey’s literary agency, the Story Factory, dropped the author when those allegations first surfaced. Bailey has denied all allegations.” (Via Publishers Weekly)
  • And of course, you’ll find a fresh set of Jewish lit links over on the My Machberet blog (including some timely info for anyone who might want to submit poetry to the Jewish Book Council).

Have a great weekend.
