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.

  • At the Yiddish Book Center, they’re taking applications for the Great Jewish Books Summer Program for rising high school juniors and seniors. “Every admitted participant receives a scholarship for the full cost of tuition, room, board, books, and special events.” Deadline: March 4.
  • The Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy (ISGAP) has issued a call for “Flashpoint features.” The guidelines indicate compensation of a “modest honorarium”; via e-mail, I was informed that payment is $180 USD. No deadline indicated.
  • A message from “out-loud and proud” Jewish author Jean Meltzer.
  • In New York, the Forward is hiring an opinion editor. “This is a senior leadership role, reporting to the Editor-in-Chief, with a salary range of $80,000 and $110,000 depending on experience, and generous benefits.” No deadline indicated. (Cross-posted on Practicing Writing.)
  • Via Jewish Insider‘s Matthew Kassel: “Noa Tishby, Israel’s former special envoy for combating antisemitism and the author of a popular explainer on Israel, is releasing a new book in April, Uncomfortable Conversations with a Jew, co-written with Emmanuel Acho, a Fox Sports analyst and former NFL linebacker.”

Reminder: If you haven’t checked it lately, you may want to peruse the “After October 7: Readings, Recordings, and More” document-in-progress.

Shabbat shalom.

Markets and Jobs for Writers

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. These weekly 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! I do notice, and I appreciate the courtesy.
