Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Whew. It has been a busy time!

There’s been freelance writing. Preparation for next month’s writing conference (icymi: I’ll be attending as a student, to do some more work on my full-length poetry manuscript). My “summer-school” immersion in Hebrew study. Weekend-long gatherings (two weekends ago: high-school friends; this past weekend: college classmates). An array of other events dotting my calendar.

And now there’s this big announcement:

I’m delighted to share that I’ve joined the team that’s helping to publicize the latest work by Rabbi Shai Held: The Heart of Torah, a remarkable two-volume set of essays on the weekly Torah portion forthcoming from The Jewish Publication Society.

Much more to say about this in the coming weeks. For now, I’m simply honored that Rabbi Held has entrusted me with this project.

  1. Hi Erica
    Thanks for information. I sent today my manuscript “Isaac is Looking for a New Mother” to Jewish Publishing Society. Maybe I will be lucky!

  3. Erika, I’m slowly reading, a short chapter a night, a book you might well like: THE ARTIST’S TORAH by David Ebenbach. As I am not Jewish, I am learning much of what I was unaware when age 15 I began going through the full Bible a chapter a night. So this is a great re-education. Elisavietta

      Hi, Elisavietta. Yes, indeed–an impressive book. I have a copy, too.
