1. EDITOR’S NOTE
Welcome, practicing writers:
This time last week, you would have found me in Philadelphia, where—not coincidentally—the 2022 Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference was taking place. Philadelphia is an easy train ride from my home in New York, so while I was not part of any panel, and I wasn’t staffing any booth or table, I decided, pretty last-minute, to travel to #AWP22.
I decided to go—but I tailored my experience. Over time, AWP conferences have become most meaningful to me because they offer opportunities to gather with friends I don’t often see otherwise. It’s now rare that I register for the entire conference. More typically—as I did this year—I’ll purchase the Saturday pass, which means that I stroll the always-interesting Bookfair and drop in on panels for one day only.
The rest of the time, I’m off-site. Last week, that meant catching up with friends over meals (and, ahem, beverages). Gathering in a hotel lobby with comrades from a Facebook writers’ group I’m part of. Attending an off-site reading (where I even had the chance to sub for a reader who, at the last minute, couldn’t be there).
I also used some of the time away from home to tackle my own to-do list—which included working on an application for one of the opportunities listed in this very newsletter.
Masks were mandatory on the conference premises, and yes, it did feel different to be sitting in a convention-center meeting-room with a KN95 on my face. But what felt delightfully familiar was the sense of inspiration and discovery that filled me as I absorbed what the panelists presented. Likewise, I don’t think I’d realized how much I missed in-person readings until I found myself sitting upstairs at the bar at Strangelove’s, listening to other people read from their work.
And, as always, it was more than worth it to spend time, however fleeting, with writer-friends.
I hope that you, too, have had happy times since the last newsletter went out. And here’s to an amazing April for all of us—and for our writing practices.
P.S. Happy Poetry Month!
2. SUCCESS STORIES
From Saira Khan:
I got my story published as a chapbook thanks to your newsletter and I wanted to celebrate with you! Such a lovely collation you do and I congratulate you in bringing us all together.
From A.J. Bermudez (who happens to be co-editor of The Maine Review, which offers fee-free submission windows that I’ve mentioned many times):
I was thrilled to win the Alpine Fellowship Writing Prize in 2021, after initially learning about it through this newsletter. I can’t recommend the fellowship or The Practicing Writer highly enough.
Erika, I know you ask for us to let you know, but I always forget, so I just wanted to tell you now while I’m thinking about it that I’ve sold several things due to your leads in the newsletter and I really appreciate all your hard work. Thank you!!!
Please share news from your writing practice that may be connected with this newsletter or our other resources. I love to celebrate such successes in this space!
3. FEATURED RESOURCE
As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I’ve become an avid reader-fan of Sarah Einstein’s WRITING FAMILY HISTORIES newsletter, in which Einstein situates her own current work within the larger project “of reconstructing and writing about family history, and turning that writing into work that is of interest to people beyond our own kin.” If this sounds relevant for your writing practice, be sure to check it out. (Additional features are available for paid subscribers.)

We especially want to read — and share — narratives that center solutions from the communities most impacted by climate change and stories that envision what a truly equitable, decolonized society could look like. In 3,000 to 5,000 words, show us the world you dream of building….Imagine 2200 draws inspiration from Afrofuturism, as well as Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, disabled, feminist, and queer futures. The contest is also grounded in hopepunk and solarpunk — literary genres that uplift equitable climate solutions and continued service to one’s community, even in the face of despair.” Open to writers worldwide. “The first-prize story will be awarded $3,000; second prize is $2,000; and third prize is $1,000. Nine additional finalists will each receive $300. All 12 final stories will be published on Fix’s website, and the authors will be celebrated in a virtual event.”

An April 15 deadline comes from Canada-based ARSENAL PULP PRESS: “We are currently seeking submissions for a yet-to-be-named literary essay anthology that examines our deep and complex relationship with the fibre arts. Knitting, sewing, embroidery, crochet, lacework, felting, beading and weaving have long been dismissed as ‘hobbies’ or feminine pursuits. Editors Marita Dachsel and Nancy Lee are looking for essays (approx. 2,000 to 5,000 words) that engage fibre arts practice as a lens (positive or negative) through which to examine larger contemporary issues: identity, technology, climate change, personal struggle, politics, family, adventure, relationship, art, science, or any other complexities of life. These essays will challenge the traditional view of crafting and explore the role, purpose, frustration, joy, humour and necessity of fibre arts amidst the alienating pressures of modern life. We are particularly interested in lived experiences and perspectives historically underrepresented in the fibre arts space, work that challenges the dominant culture view and pushes beyond easy nostalgia and sentimentality to examine the unusual and unexpected. We invite essays that are formally inventive, including graphic forms.” Payment: “an honorarium as well as two contributor copies.”
CONSEQUENCE, which is “interested in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, reviews, visual art, and translations focused on the human consequences and realities of war and geopolitical violence,” is also open for submissions until April 15. Pay for written work ranges between $20 and $80. (Note that April 15 is also the deadline for a special translations feature on North and South Korea.)
Also with an April 15 deadline: MASKS LITERARY MAGAZINE, which, while catching up with submissions of poetry and fiction, remains open for “art, photography, and nonfiction.” Pays: “In addition to a contributor copy of the print issue, fiction and nonfiction writers will receive a $25-$35 honorarium per piece (3,000 words or less), and poets will receive $20 per poem.” NB: All fiction and nonfiction submissions will be considered for the 2022 Prose Award; all poetry submissions will be considered for the 2022 Poetry Award. These prizes confer $100 each. (Hat tip @Duotrope.)

Also in both cases, “pay starts at $500, with room to go up for more ambitious stories.” (Hat tip here: WOW! Markets Newsletter.)
