Call for Submissions

Get monthly, no-fee, writing submission calls delivered to your inbox!

If you don’t already subscribe to Erika Dreifus‘ free monthly newsletter The Practicing Writer you may be missing some great opportunities. It’s a nice reminder that you need to submit your writing on a regular basis to get your work out there… it’s also a nice reminder that you need to write!

Thanks to Erika for sharing some of my submission call posts and for her kind comments about my blog. She really offers such a great service and we writers need to stick together!

Make sure to also subscribe to her Practicing Writing blog, where she posts weekly content, like the Monday Markets and Jobs for Writers, Friday Finds for Writers, and Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer.

  1. Thanks, Trish! Just to clarify in case anyone is confused–the monthly newsletter requires one subscription; the blog posts, including the weekly “Monday Markets” post, require another. A lot of non-overlapping material in the two.
