Poetry Submission Resource: Creative Writers Opportunities List

After Duotrope, I have found this to be the best resource for new calls for submission. The Creative Writers Opportunities List (or CWROPPS) is a 13,000 + Yahoo Group moderated by poet and editor Allison Joseph. The group was created in 2005, though I have not been a member quite that long.

A new list is emailed to subscribers daily unless the moderator is on hiatus (which happens to be the case this week). Since this is a “list,” you cannot run a search. The list contains calls for submissions, contests, writing residencies, and creative writing job opportunities for poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. A brief description of each item, which is provided by the person who submitted the item, is included. Web sites for further information for each listing are also provided.

If you like culling information from a paragraph of text rather than a format such as Duotrope uses, CWROPPS will appeal to you.

You may subscribe to the list by emailing: crwropps-b-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.
