The May/June issue of Poets & Writers magazine is out, which means that a new batch of Classifieds have been posted online. Now, on this blog, I post only opportunities that a) pay writers cash and b) don't charge no entry/application/reading fees. The Classifieds have no such rules/guarantees. So check them out knowing that. But do check them out.
