Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick updates from my desk.

1. Earlier this week I sent a revised version of my picture-book manuscript to an editor who’d shared several suggestions after reading an earlier iteration—plus willingness to reconsider the story after revision. So I am waiting. Nervously! And hopefully.

2. Meantime, a delightful and gratifying surprise came my way when I read Karen E.H. Skinazi’s new article on “Twenty-First Century Jewish Literature by Women in the U.S.” on the Jewish Women’s Archive website. (Spoiler: I’m mentioned within, for Quiet Americans: Stories!)

3. And I’ve been putting final touches on the July issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0, which will go out to subscribers today.

    Congrats, Erika, on being part of US Jewish women’s writing in Jewish Women’s Archive. that’s a true honor. I can well understand your unease and unhappiness at the state of all we hold dear…keep writing to us, your readers, what you feel. The brief interview with David Grossman is a great help clearing one’s head, not because it offers an false hope but for its clarity and truthfulness.
