Monday Morning Markets/Jobs/Opportunities

As I was perusing the latest issue of The Quarterly Conversation, I was inspired to check the submission guidelines and discovered that this is indeed a paying online venue. "We are always looking for book reviews, essays, and interviews that address literature (broadly conceived) from original and provocative perspectives." Pays: $25/book review, $30/interview, and $40/feature. Guidelines available here.
The literary magazine Salamander is looking for a Managing Editor. This position is based at Boston's Suffolk University; it is listed as a 24-hour/week, "benefit-eligible" job. See the full announcement here.
Two items came my way via a Poets & Writers e-newsletter last week. First is an announcement about funding available for readings/workshops in Queens, New York. "Although New York City is a major literary center, not all the boroughs are served equally. P&W is particularly interested in supporting more literary events in Queens. If you are interested in applying for funding for an upcoming reading or workshop in Queens, please visit or email rwny(at)pw(dot)org." And second, P&W wants you to know that they support translators, too: "In addition to poets, fiction, and creative nonfiction writers, the R/W program also supports translators. Any published translator reading his or her original translations of the aforementioned genres and/or conducting a translation workshop is eligible for funding. For more information about eligibility, please visit"
The Fund for Women Artists has posted its latest Theatre Funding e-newsletter, with plenty of competitions, publication/production opportunities, and funding resources detailed within. The organization's name notwithstanding, many of the programs listed are open to men, too.
And, as always, some jobs for your consideration:

Visiting Assistant Professor of Journalism, State University of New York-Purchase
Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing & Scriptwriting, University of Derby (UK; thanks for the tip, BJ!)
Writing Coordinator, Williams College (Massachusetts)
Writer, University of California-Davis (School of Education)
Publications Writer, Northwestern University (Illinois; Kellogg School)
And don't forget the part-time, benefit-eligible job at Suffolk University listed above!
