Every Friday morning My Machberet presents an assortment of links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • Tempting conference coming up at Princeton University on Sunday, April 7: “American Jewish Culture: ‘Fresh Vitality in Every Direction.'” Including literary directions.
  • If you aspire to write Jewish-themed children’s books, you may want to look into this workshop, scheduled for June at the Highlights Foundation in Honesdale, Penn.
  • The Ilanot Review seeks “hybrid literary texts” for its next issue. Deadline: April 30.
  • New to me this week:, which “features reporting and analysis of geopolitical, security, economic, social and other events and trends affecting the Middle East and America’s interests in the region.” (h/t @dg_myers)
  • Thanks to David Remnick, you may feel as though you, too, were able to attend Philip Roth’s 80th birthday party.
  • Shabbat shalom.
