Monday Morning Market Listings

Back from my brief trip, and pleased to present you with another round-up of Monday morning opportunities for your writing practice!

Toddler is a new parenting magazine, profiled here.

========== has upped its pay rates for its contributors. See new rates for freelance articles "on 'selling' the written word" and for freelance "success stories" here.


I am an avid reader of Moment magazine (I was also lucky enough to have one of my stories reach finalist status in the magazine's annual short fiction contest a couple of years ago). So naturally I was intrigued by this craiglist posting for Moment's Writing Fellows program, which "prepares talented young journalists for a career in magazine journalism, providing them the opportunity to work for a year at Moment Magazine, an independent national magazine of Jewish politics, culture and religion co-founded by Elie Wiesel and based in Washington DC." Pays: $18,000 for a one-year fellowship (plus health insurance).


"Notorious Press invites authors to submit short fiction to be considered for inclusion in the upcoming anthology HARDBOILED HORROR edited by James Van Pelt. General theme is that all stories will include elements of *both* the Horror and Mystery/Crime genres. This title will be a PoD trade paperback with a release date of early 2008. (Possibly first available at the World Horror Convention in March, 2008.)" Pays: $50/story. Submission deadline: September 30, 2007. Check full guidelines here.


Milkweed Editions is developing a short fiction anthology to be published in fall 2008. "The editors hope to solicit work suggestive of the increasingly diverse and multicultural nature of Minnesota, and the volume's publication is timed to mark the sesquicentennial of the founding of the state." Looking for work from Minnesota residents only. Writers also "may not have had more than one previous book-length publication. Unpublished writers and writers of color are encouraged to submit manuscripts for consideration. All contributors will receive an honorarium of at least $500 (the final amount to be determined according to the number of contributors included)." Unpublished work only. Deadline: October 1, 2007. More information at Milkweed Editions. (via CRWROPPS)


Teaching positions available at Northwestern State University (Natchitoches, LA) include an Assistant Professorship in English. "We seek a candidate with a specialization in Composition/Composition Studies. Ability to teach courses such at technical writing, document design, other business/professional writing courses, computers in composition, or other related areas in composition. Fiction writing background an asset. Record of high quality teaching at the university level, established research agenda and Ph.D. required; ABD candidates with scheduled defense dates will be considered." See the announcement at
