Jewish Newspaper for the SF Bay Area Seeks Local Writers’ Fiction and Poetry

This just in via email:

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 Work can be unpublished or recently published, short stories or novel excerpts.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, and while we prepare for a much needed web site upgrade, past Lit selections can be found at 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.
