J, the weekly Jewish newspaper for the SF Bay Area, is seeking fiction by Northern California Jewish writers for its monthly Lit page. Work can be unpublished or recently published, short stories or novel excerpts. We can run 800 words in our print edition and an (optional) longer version of up to 3,000 words in our online edition. The work does not have to have a Jewish theme, although that is a plus. We are unfortunately not able to offer payment but will provide copies. Our readership is about 40,000. Our general web site is www.jweekly.com, and while we prepare for a much needed web site upgrade, past Lit selections can be found at http://jweeklylit.wordpress.com. To submit your work or get more information, email Ilana DeBare at debare(at)well(dot)com.
We also welcome poetry by Northern California Jewish writers. Send poems to poetry(at)jweekly(dot)com.
Reminder: You can find similar opportunities with other publications listed here.

I wanted to let you know that Lilith Magazine (http://lilith.org) and the Lilith Blog are looking for thoughtful contributions that touch on the Jewish female experience or are of interest to Jewish women (genderqueer/LGBTQA/female-identified perspectives included, of course). Our slogan: “Independent, Jewish and frankly feminist.”
Check out our blog here: http://lilith.org/blog.
We take poetry, essays, reportage, book reviews, and interviews and are open to other forms of writing as well. We also pay (although not richly, as we’re a small, niche, non-profit publication).
For consideration in the print magazine, use our Submittable: https://lilith.submittable.com/submit
For blog pitches and/or pieces, send them my way to talia(at)lilith(dot)org.
