Monday Morning Markets/Jobs/Opportunities

A second anthology of "interstitial fiction" is planned for release in 2009 (Small Beer Press will publish, under the auspices of the Interstitial Arts Foundation). "Interstitial Fiction is all about breaking rules, ignoring boundaries, cross-pollinating the fields of literature. It's about working between, across, through, and at the edges and borders of literary genres, including fiction and non-fiction. It falls between the cracks of other movements, terms, and definitions. If you have a story idea that's impossible to describe in a couple of sentences, it may be interstitial." Pays: $.05/word on publication, plus two copies. Submissions should be sent between October 1, 2008 and December 2, 2008, so mark your calendars now! Full guidelines posted by co-editor Christopher Barzak here.

"We seek poetry, short stories, essays, articles, excerpts from novels/plays/screenplays, dreams, journal entries, photo essays, blog posts, collages, manifestoes, or email exchanges that imaginatively contextualize black gay men's lives in connection with your own." Pays: $100 plus 10 copies. See the announcement here. (via Tayari Jones's blog)
