I may not be posting much for the next few days, so to tide you over until next week I'm sharing a few announcements/posts I've recently found:
1) Chicken Soup for the Kids Soul 3, "a compilation of fun, inspiring stories for kids ages 6-10," is looking for submissions. Deadline: May 12, 2006. Payment: $200. Read more here.
2) Internews Network and the National Bank of Greece announce the 2006 Greek Cultural Fellowships. "This year's program is designed to provide U.S. based journalists with a unique opportunity to travel to Greece for a one-week information gathering visit focusing on the transformation of Greece and Greece's role internationally following the successful 2004 Olympics." 12 journalists will win one-week travel grants. To learn more about this program (which seems to be open to freelancers) and download the application form, click here.
3) Finally, Venues Today, a California-based trade publication, seeks stories on Italian venues and events (especially for the upcoming Olympics). Pays $100 per news story and $250 per 1,200-word trend feature. See the craigslist post for more information.
