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). This week’s post again leads off with some emergency resources. Please note, too, that I’m providing the information that I have found as I have found it—it would be unsurprising if some opportunities are modified thereafter in these fast-changing times, especially where residencies and ceremonies may be concerned.

Friday Finds for Writers

Image description: wooden box filled with treasures/trinkets.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.

  • Ahead of the #MarchforOurLives, The Washington Post‘s Ron Charles reviews three new novels about gun violence.
  • One of the novels in Ron’s triple review is How to Be Safe by Tom McAllister, whose essay on teaching creative writing for The Millions this week resonated with me.
  • “Inspired by the #MeToo movement and aiming to provide a harassment-free experience’ for all attendees at its events, the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association has created an Event Code of Conduct that will be displayed prominently at official PNBA gatherings, in the footer on every page of PNBA.org and among the category headers on the trade show webpage.”—via Shelf Awareness.
  • Journalist Tristan Ahtone “is at work on a set of guidelines for fair and accurate coverage of Native American lives and stories, as part of his stint at Harvard as a Nieman Fellow.”
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
  • Have a wonderful weekend.
