From Tablet Magazine:
Tablet Magazine is looking for interns for our spring term, which runs from the beginning of the new year through May.
If you have experience in journalism and are familiar with the landscape of American Jewish life, we’d love to hear from you. We are hiring interns to work either two or three days a week at our office in New York City. Interns will contribute blogposts and full features as well as assist the editorial staff with research and administrative tasks. They will be paid stipends. If you’re interested, please send a cover letter, a résumé, and three writing clips to mtracy(at)tabletmag(dot)com, by Friday, December 3. We look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck to anyone who applies!
It’s time for the monthly Jewish Book Carnival!
This month’s Carnival is hosted by JewishBoston.com, and David Levy has done a lovely job highlighting the fact that next month’s Carnival will be hosted by yours truly. I’m looking forward to it!
In the meantime, however, do check out all of the interesting Jewish lit links at the JewishBoston.com Carnival post.
As you may know, on my other blog, I limit contest announcements to competitions that do not charge entry fees. For contests interested in specifically Jewish content, however, there’s a more limited pool of information to share, so I (reluctantly) expand listings to fee-charging programs.
Here’s a new one to share with you:
The Summer Literary Seminars SLS Jewish Lithuania/Litvak Experiences Program is pleased to announce a new non-fiction contest: East-European Roots: New Writing on the Old World, held this year in affiliation with Tablet Magazine, an online magazine providing a “new take on Jewish life”, and judged by Philip Lopate.
The theme for the contest is Eastern European Histories: people’s roots and ancestral heritage.
The contest winner will have their work prominently featured online in Tablet Magazine. Additionally, they will receive free airfare, tuition, and housing to our 2011 SLS Jewish Lithuania/Litvak Experiences Program.
Second-place winners will receive a full tuition waiver for the 2011 SLS Jewish Lithuania/Litvak Experiences Program, and third-place winners will receive a 50% tuition discount.
A number of select contest participants, based on the overall strength of their work, will be offered tuition scholarships, as well, applicable to the 2011 SLS Jewish Lithuania/Litvak Experiences Program. Read the full guidelines.
Note that there is a $15 application fee, and the application deadline is March 15, 2011.
Good luck to anyone who enters this competition!
