These links used to go out as part of the News and Writing links posts, but I have decided to do a separate post as the the news and links posts have been getting longer and longer. This will hopefully make them more manageable and allow me to post the things with deadlines more promptly! I will aim to send them every Friday morning (and the News posts on Saturdays). I also usually post them on twitter as soon as I receive them, so follow me there if you would like to receive them earlier. Also I welcome contributions so if you have a job, scholarship, conference CFP or other opportunity you would like to advertise please send it through. Each post is sent to a mailing list of 700 people working in the arts and academic sector and the site receives well over 2500 hits per week so it is a good way to get the message out. – Katrina Grant
