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.

  • The Writer has recently updated its list of “30 essential digital tools, apps, & resources for every writer.”
  • Great piece on “the slogging reality of writing” by Nieman Storyboard editor Jacqui Banaszynski.
  • Hurry up if you’re interested in this one: free presentation by Jane Friedman on “Today’s Key Book Publishing Paths: Traditional, Self, and Everything in Between.” (Happening this evening.)
  • In which Anne Trubek demystifies the acquisitions process at Belt Publishing.
  • Another week, another set of Jewish-lit links posted over on My Machberet.

Have a great weekend, everyone. (And yes, if you’re a newsletter subscriber, you should receive the May issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0 by day’s end. The issue will also be archived on Substack.)

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.)

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!
