I subscribe to plenty of e-newsletters for writers. Here’s an item I found in one that I received yesterday from the Kentucky Foundation for Women:
NON-PROFIT SEEKS FREELANCE WRITERS
Freelance writers needed for the Jewish Community of Louisville Inc’s Community newspaper. Published monthly, Community includes a wide range of local, national and international news articles, features, stories, editorials and reviews. Assignments are on an as-needed basis and payment is negotiable, but will vary based on the amount of work involved. Ability to take photos is a plus. The newspaper is committed to providing coverage of major local events, and includes reviews of books, plays, films and artistic exhibitions of Jewish interest. If interested, please email your resumé and a writing sample to swallace[at]jewishlouisville[dot]org.
Two weeks ago, I attended a panel event, held at the Center for Jewish History here in Manhattan, that helped launch a new book, Holocaust Literature: A History and Guide. And last Friday, my account of that event was posted on the “Well Versed” blog of The Jewish Week, a New York-based newspaper that I subscribe to.
“Looking at Holocaust Literature Anew” is my debut post for Well Versed, and I hope it signals many to come–and perhaps even some bylines within the paper itself. We shall see.
Meantime, here’s the opening of the post:
Definitions can be tricky. Just try to find agreement on what qualifies (or not) as “Jewish literature.”
Perhaps equally arguable: any effort to define “Holocaust literature.”
In their new book, “Holocaust Literature: A History and Guide” (Brandeis University Press), David Roskies and Naomi Diamant propose some striking new terms.
Intrigued? Please keep reading!
