Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.
“De Beauvoir and Sartre on the Kibbutz”—a short story by Moshe Sakal (translated by Jessica Cohen; published by World Literature Today). And yes, I looked up some history, and the two of them (De Beauvoir and Sartre) really did visit Israel (in 1967, before the Six-Day War).
“The Very Nervous Family” is a stunning prose poem by Sabrina Orah Mark that I discovered this week via @MrBearStumpy.
Adventures in book-touring with Francine Klagsbrun (and, by extension, with Golda Meir).
Call for info from In geveb: “Did you publish a translation in 2018 – or will you? Please let us know so we can add you to our round-up.”
“Lilith Magazine—independent, Jewish and frankly feminist—invites submissions of quality short fiction, 3,000 words or under, for our Annual Fiction Contest.” No entry fee. Deadline: September 30, 2018. Prize: “$250 + publication.”
