WOW! Wants Bloggers and Submissions

Some of you might already know about this submission call out from WOW, but for those who don't here's something you might want to check out. I found this information in WOW's May 2010 newsletter.

WOW! is seeking submissions for these upcoming themes:

Creativity: (Deadline for queries/subs: July 15, 2010) They want writers to get creative and send queries/subs!

The Freelance Union 3: (Deadline for queries/subs: September 15, 2010) This issue covers all topics related to freelance writing. This will be their third issue on the subject, so they are looking for article topics they haven't covered before.

For complete details, review the submission guidelines on their Contact page. This will give rates and directions on how to submit. Good luck!

The editors of The Muffin, that's WOW!'s blog, are looking for bloggers with these areas of expertise:

Fiction: The editors want someone who enjoys sharing knowledge, tips, and advice with fellow writers. They want a writer dedicated to fiction, who has a novel under her belt and/or published short stories to craft short posts on how-to topics related to fiction writing.

"Tech" Topics: The editors are looking for a blogger who can write about various "tech" topics in a reader-friendly voice to guide newbies through the labyrinth of the web. Posts can be about anything from how to burn a feed to how to find groups on Twitter.

Blog posts should be short, simple how-tos written for beginners. All posts will be roughly 250 - 500 words. Familiarity with Wordpress and blogging is preferred. This is an ongoing blogging position where you'd be required to blog regularly and come up with your own post ideas with little or no supervision. Starting pay: $5 per post, paid monthly through PayPal. Send an e-mail to editors@wow-womenonwriting.com with "Fiction Blogger" or "Tech Topics Blogger" in the subject line. Include links to sample blog posts related to the topic you're applying for. Include links to your blog(s) and/or links to blogs you currently blog for. Let them know how many days a month or week you'd like to blog.

Now those are some fine writing opportunities. All I can say is WOW! Oh, and good luck!
