If you've seen the latest Poets & Writers magazine, you may have noticed a column describing New Ohio Review (NOR). That's where I learned that NOR is becoming a paying journal. From the NOR Web site: "Beginning with its fifth issue, New Ohio Review's contributors will receive honoraria of $10/page for prose and $15/page for poetry, $30 minimum, in addition to two copies of the issue and a one-year subscription."
And if you're a student enrolled in a New England college, you might want to consider competing for the John Holmes Award. Conferred by the New England Poetry Club, this is a $100 prize for a poem. No fee. Details here.
Meet literary agent Alanna Ramirez, who represents "literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, memoir, pop culture and lifestyle books."
"Lyon College, Batesville, Arkansas, a highly selective four-year liberal arts college, seeks a distinguished writer of fiction for its 4th biennial Visiting Fellowship in Creative Writing, a semester-long residency scheduled during the autumn 2009 semester. While the fellowship is considered mainly an opportunity for the writer to spend time on his or her own work, he or she will also give a public reading and teach a beginning fiction-writing workshop (3 hours per week). An honorarium of $5,000 plus campus housing and meals are provided, as well as a travel stipend of up to $350 for round-trip transportation to and from Batesville." There is no application fee. Deadline: April 1, 2009. Check here for more information.
And what kind of Monday morning post would this be without some jobs to round out the picture?
