Writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.(more…)
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.(more…)
Don’t worry—it’s not Monday yet! These posts usually go out on Mondays, but with the Yom Kippur holiday starting at sunset on Sunday, September 27, I’m sending this one early (admittedly–I didn’t intend to send it THIS early—glitch!). I’ll be offline for the holiday from sunset, Sunday, September 27, until after sunset Monday evening. I’ll address any comments thereafter.
Also! Expect a heaping helping of calls and contests to arrive in the October issue of The Practicing Writer, which will go out to subscribers on Wednesday. In the meantime, give one more glance to the still-open opportunities listed in the September edition.(more…)
Each week in this space, Practicing Writing shares no-fee, paying markets for writers of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction: competitions, contests, and calls for submissions. The posts complement monthly issues of The Practicing Writer newsletter, where you’ll always find more listings, none of them limiting eligibility to residents of a single municipality, state, or province. (But this blog does share those more localized opportunities, including jobs.)
As always, if you’d like to share a specific opportunity listed here, please credit the blog for the find. Thanks for respecting the time and effort that I put into researching, curating, and posting this information!(more…)
Writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Up on the Submittable blog: a post filled with tips and resources for promoting your book in late 2020.
- Another resource: Uli Baer’s “Wear NEON: Helpful Tips and Tricks for Fully On-Line College Teaching.”
- On Electric Literature: “It’s Time for Disabled Writers to Tell Their Own Stories,” a conversation between Jennifer Baker and Alice Wong.
- New resource especially for early-career freelancers: “Successful Pitches is as straightforward as it sounds: a database of pitches that have successfully led to stories at a variety of publications.” Learn more about it in Stephanie Russell-Kraft’s CJR article.
- And if it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh batch of Jewish-lit links up on the My Machberet blog. Take a look!
Have a good weekend!
The My Machberet blog is proud to serve as July 2020 host for the Jewish Book Carnival, a monthly event where those who cover Jewish books online “can meet, read, and comment on each others’ posts.” Organized by the Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL), the Carnival travels around and is hosted on a different participant’s site on the 15th of each month.
Herewith, the July Carnival!(more…)
