Each week as Shabbat approaches, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.
- Via Twitter: a new call for submissions from TC Jewfolk.
- Tablet‘s fall 2020 journalism program offers 10 paid, part-time, remote fellowships. Applications due by September 10.
- “The Letters Project: Conversing Across Narratives is a letter-writing contest based on Yossi Klein Halevi’s book, Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor: With an Extensive Epilogue of Palestinian Responses. Enter our high school contest (ages 14-18), our post-high school contest (ages 18-22), or our young adult contest (ages 22-42). There will be three [cash] prize winners in each age group.” Entrants may also request reimbursement for book purchases. Deadline: December 1. (Reminder: I am a huge fan of this book; after I read the first version, I purchased and read the paperback with Palestinian and other responses, too.)
- This week brought a couple of occasions that inspired me to share my resource list of “where to read (and publish) writing on Jewish themes.” So perhaps it’s time that I mention it again here, too.
- And guess who’s leading an upcoming virtual book club for the American Jewish University? Maybe you’ll want to register?
