Wednesday’s Work-in-Progress: Inaugural Seminar on Jewish Story

I spent most of last Sunday at the inaugural Seminar on Jewish Story, organized by Barbara Krasner and co-sponsored by the Association of Jewish Libraries. It was a speaker- and panel-packed day, closing with a fiction panel that included Nora Gold, Yona Zeldis McDonough, and me. I had the pleasure of re-connecting with some people I hadn’t seen in awhile, meeting “new” acquaintances, and finally talking face-to-face with several individuals I’ve come to know through email and social media. I was asked several times about contests and other resources for “Jewish writing,” so I thought I’d take a moment today to point out the “Jewish Writing Resources” section of this website. Trust me, there’s some good stuff there (some of it created specifically in response to questions that come to me via email all.the.time.). Please do take a look.

    It was good getting to meet you at the Jewish seminar. And thanks so much for running this web site.

    If you’re ever in Ann Arbor–and one never knows–please give me a call.
