Deadline Approaching for Goldberg Prize

Just received an e-reminder about the Goldberg Prize for Jewish Fiction by Emerging Writers. Administered by the Foundation for Jewish Culture, the award includes a prize of $2,500 and a one-week residency at Ledig House International Writers Colony. It honors a first or second full-length work of fiction published in the previous calendar year. The work must explore Jewish themes.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and the prize application must be made by the publisher.

Completed applications must be received by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, July 31, 2009.
