Market Notes

I almost missed this contest from Esquire, but there's still two days left to enter and they're only looking for 78 words! Deadline is October 7 and prizes are scholarships for writing workshops in NY and Aspen. You can find all the details here Open to American writers only.

From friend of the blog, Paul Brazill, we have FolioFirst a new UK based zine looking for short stories of less than 10,000 words. The issues are themed and Octobers theme is transgression. This is a non-paying market.

Liars' League is also a non-paying market but I love the idea. Writers supply the stories and actors read them to a live audience in London! They accept shorts of 800 to 2000 words and there are themes. Payment is an ipod copy of the reading.

Duotrope has declared Thieves Jargon a dead market. I've been checking regularly and there have been no new issues since March. If you haven't checked out TJ, you should. There's some really great short stories on the site.
