New Markets, Residencies and Other Opportunities

I’ve got several different types of markets and opportunities today. I wish I could take credit for them, but oh well. 😀


This first one is courtesy of Hope Clark:

GLOBAL ARTS VILLAGE – INDIA
http://www.globalartsvillage.org/residencies.htm

A residency can provide much needed time away from your normal 
environment and routine. You are encouraged to develop your work 
based upon your Indian experience and inspiration. The Village 
offers residency programs to emerging, mid-career and established 
artists. Residencies are offered for all major creative disciplines 
(visual, performing, literary, healing arts) and we also welcome 
professionals, researchers and scholars. Residents choose from 
standard, duplex or accommodations in administrative staff quarters 
and are provided with work studio space, three prepared vegetarian 
meals per day, laundry service, broadband wi-fi internet access 
and airport pick-up. Specific requirements, benefits, conditions 
and additional information are outlined within the program and 
facility descriptions. India is a land full of contrast, beauty 
and surprises. The residencies provide the perfect amount of 
time to absorb the Indian experience, create work and allow for 
travel time before or after the residency period. Selection 
Procedure: Applications are reviewed by a panel and selection 
is based upon your current body of work, project description, 
and motivation to develop your art, project, and/or work in 
India. 



I can’t take credit for this one, either. It’s many thanks to Eve in the Authors of Asian Novels Group.


A new magazine (short story market) is available at http://kunlunjournal.blogspot.com/2010/12/welcome-to-kunlun-journal.htmlHe’s especially interested in Wuxia, which is the type of story where you have a wondering warrior. Think “Seven Samurai,” “Lone Wolf and Cub,” etc.


My own story is a member of the Wuxia family as it’s based on one of the early Wuxia classics, “The Romance of the Three Kingdoms.” If you’re interested in helping me polish the new opening I’ve made thanks to Tessa Elwood and Donna Hole (you ladies have my gratitude and a critique coming whenever you need it!), go to Mourn Their Courage and let me know if you have any questions.


Are you aware of any markets I should post about? (I’ll give you credit and many thanks.) Do you have a critique concern you’d like to share? Drop me a note and we can brainstorm.

    Oh, I wish I could take a writing residency in India! mAybe someday when they kids are grown. So nice of you to offer help with critique issues. I may take you up on that someday!

  2. Victoria Dixon says:

    I know! Doesn't that sound exotic? I can just imagine some of the stories I could spin out of such a visit. Fiction and non-fic. Sigh.

  3. Jemi Fraser says:

    Neat opportunities! Sound like fun! 🙂

  4. Christina Farley says:

    I like this kind of post. Thanks for sharing. Too bad I can't travel right now. 🙂

  5. Amie Kaufman says:

    Oh, imagine a writing residency in India! I can't do more than dream of it just now, but even dreaming is like a little holiday!

  6. Victoria Dixon says:

    I know, the mere thought makes you dream of warmth and spices, doesn't it? Smell the cardamon, visit the Ghanges and markets. Sigh. Makes me wish I could travel to the next state… LOL

  7. JohnD says:

    Thanks for spreading the word about Kunlun Journal. For everyone else here, I'm the founder of that journal.

    As Victoria said, I'm looking for wuxia, but also any story set in China (or other east and south-east asian countries) in an historical period. Aside from that, any genre is welcome, from crime to romance to whatever.

  8. Janet Johnson says:

    You are so good at finding these. How cool would India be?

  9. Victoria Dixon says:

    Thanks for dropping by, John and Janet!
