Call for Submissions: NPR’s “Hanukkah Lights”
We’re still in medias chagim, but at National Public Radio (NPR), they’re already planning the next “Hanukkah Lights” broadcast. It’s a program that I’ve always been fond of, particularly since I contributed a story.
This week I received an email with information about this year’s “Hanukkah Lights” show that I’ve been encouraged to share:
“NPR is looking for stories for this year’s Hannukah Lights special. Fiction is preferred; non-fiction submissions will be considered – 4,000 words or less. NPR will pay $500 for any story selected for broadcast. Please send questions or submissions to pfitzgerald(at)npr(dot)org and smohamed(at)npr(dot)org before October 31st.
I did ask about reprints. The response: “We can consider already published material if we can get the rights to broadcast the work.”
But beyond that, please don’t ask me your questions! I’m truly JTM (just the messenger).
Please do contact Pilar Fitzgerald and Suraya Mohamed with your questions and/or submissions.
Thanks, everyone—and good luck!
