Welcome to Practicing Writing! Here you’ll find updates on writing and publishing opportunities (especially handy between issues of our popular monthly newsletter). You’ll discover ONLY opportunities that charge no fees, and ONLY publications/contests that will pay for your writing. The blog also shares writing-related news and resources and updates regarding this practicing writer’s own work.

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

I’m just back from my first visit to the Association for Jewish Studies annual conference, held this year in Boston.

Which means that I have a lot to catch up on, and a lot to follow up on, and won’t write a lengthy post today.

But, pictured above, you’ll find one book (left) that I purchased; one book (right) that I won (as part of a team that tied for second place at Monday night’s trivia competition!); and in the middle, a teaser for a book that I’m looking forward to catching when it’s published in 2019.

More soon!

I’ve just returned from a study-and-writing retreat, and in a few days I’m setting out again for a(nother) conference. I’m working on a couple of projects that are under wraps, so I won’t describe them here and now.

But I can report, happily, a poetry acceptance! This is for a Biblically-inspired poem that will be published next month, and I’ll be delighted to share it with you as soon as I can. Continue reading ›
