To all of you celebrating Christmas on this day, may you have a beautiful holiday. These market/job listings will be waiting for you when you return! (Sorry the list is so short, but, 'tis the season, I suppose.)
Our January newsletter will be going out to subscribers shortly, most likely tomorrow.
And the blog will be back in 2007. Happy New Year, all!

2) If you're interested in pitching Verdant, a new magazine magazine presenting "smarter choices for better living," check out its profile on Bacon's The Navigator (note that this profile is geared toward publicists/pr folks, but can be useful for freelancers, too).
3) WordKnot Audio is "actively seeking humorous, literary, experimental, and especially enjoyable stories. We like edgy stories and stories with beautiful language, but please keep in mind that this is an audio format magazine so stories will have to conform to a certain standard of clarity. Screenplays are welcome. While we do not expressly forbid any type of submission, we do believe there are better markets for poetry and genre fiction. We are extremely unlikely to enjoy romance or nonfiction, unless it is humorous." Pays: $20 for stories, $5 for flash fiction. Accepts reprints.
4) Write-from-home.com is looking for writing-related articles. Pays: $30-$75, depending on rights for sale. Accepts reprints. (Via PayingWriterJobs)
5) GenealogyToday.com has several (paying) telecommuting positions available. Find out more here.
