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 www.pw.org/funding 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 www.pw.org/faq."
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!
