Toward the end of each week, the My Machberet blog presents a collection of links, drawn primarily from the world of Jewish books and writing.

Also updated this week: both “After October 7: Readings, Recordings, and More” and “Writers, Beware.”

Shabbat shalom.

Words of the Week: Herta Müller

“In the novel ‘Doctor Faustus’ by Thomas Mann it is said that National Socialism ‘made everything German in the world intolerable.’ I have the impression that the strategy of Hamas and its supporters is to make everything Israeli, and therefore everything Jewish, intolerable to the world.”

Source: Nobel literature laureate Herta Müller, “I Cannot Imagine the World Without Israel” (delivered May 25).

A couple of these have been cross-posted in the latest issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0, which features only fee-free calls and competitions that also pay for winning/published work.

A couple more preliminaries: As always, read all submission guidelines carefully. Remember that for a variety of reasons, not every opportunity will be appropriate for every writer. And find more Jewish-writing resources here on the site.

On to the listings!
