Monday Morning Market Listings

Good morning, everyone! Hope you had a good weekend. Here are some market listings to help get your writing going for the week:

1) is looking for part-time media news writers/researchers "to help us write our daily and weekly news feeds." Pays: "Contract/Weekly/Negotiable."

2) Common Ties currently seeks "personal stories about someone coping with cancer to run as a special theme on January 12, 2007. The following theme will be stories revolving around war, to run on January 19." Pays: $100-$200 ("in exceptional cases, can reach $1,000").

3) FRONT magazine, a Vancouver-based "journal of contemporary art and culture," seeks submissions for its March issue, which will focus on the theme of "Finishes." Submission deadline: February 1. Pays: "For text submissions and poetry, FRONT usually pays $25 per page" (presumably in Canadian funds).

4) Stone Magazine seeks "a writer in Charlotte [North Carolina] to do a 500 to 750 word article on an up & coming actor and former model in the Charlotte area for our May issue." Deadline: January 15. Pays: $.50/word.

5) "True real estate stories" sought. "If you think about it, almost ALL stories can be real estate related. Did your story happen in a home (even if it was rented?), a condominium or townhouse? Did it happen outside in someone's yard? How about on commercial real estate like a store or a place of employment? As long as an author can throw a decent real estate twist to it, we will look at any story." Deadline: February 28, 2007. Pays: $50-$200.

6) The Institute for Humane Studies invites applications for its 2007 Journalism Internship Program, which will take place in multiple locations June 9-August 11 (application deadline: January 31). Pays: $1500 stipend plus housing allowance and travel. Details here.

As always, I enjoy reading your blog—you've always got something new to share. I've had two stories posted by Common Ties and have found the staff extremely friendly and quick to respond.


Thank you so much for posting, Alison. I enjoyed perusing your blogs/sites, and reading your latest Common Ties essay. Lovely.
