Of course, it’s always possible to find Jewish-themed stories, poems, and essays published in a variety of “secular” media. (For more tips on that, please click here.) But many magazines, journals, and websites specifically welcome and/or promote “Jewish” writing. This page provides you with links to some examples.
Those of you who are familiar with my Practicing Writing blog and newsletter know that I tend to refer writers only to publications/opportunities that will pay writers for their work. But in this case, because the pool is relatively small, I’m also including nonpaying publications.
