Writing (and Publishing) While Jewish: The Situation in 2018

Last Sunday, I had the privilege of co-leading a session—with author Rachel Kadish—at Grub Street’s The Muse and the Marketplace conference in Boston.

Session sign from The Muse and the Marketplace.

Here’s the official description for the session on “Writing (and Publishing) While Jewish: The Situation in 2018”: Continue reading ›

Pre-Shabbat #JewLit Links

Every Friday My Machberet presents an array of Jewish-interest links, primarily of the literary variety.

  • “Two Brothers,” a poem of Purim and Passover, is the latest brilliant work from Julia Knobloch to appear on the Jewcy site.
  • I no longer work for the publisher who brought Jessamyn Hope’s debut novel Safekeeping to readers, so I have no financial incentive to share the fact that you can buy it at all. But I love this book. (As I’ve said before—and I’ll say again—it reminds me of Amos Oz’s kibbutz fiction. If that appeals, then so will this.) And Safekeeping is currently a Kindle special for just $2.99, so if you’ve been waiting to purchase it, now’s a good time!
  • Yesterday was International Women’s Day; I’m going to extend my observance over the weekend by taking a closer look at Beth Kissileff’s “list of inspiring books by Jewish women” over on The Wisdom Daily.
  • Reminders about some other posts that appeared here on My Machberet this week: a call for fiction from Moment magazine, and a poem from my own archive.
  • And if you’re looking for some weekend viewing, consider this recording of authors Dara Horn and Ruby Namdar in conversation about “Jewish time, language, and stories,” with Sandee Brawarsky. I’m looking forward to watching it, myself.
  • Shabbat shalom, chaverim.

    MOMENT Magazine Seeks Short Fiction

    Posted here with permission from Susan Keselenko Call, Moment‘s fiction editor:

    Moment Magazine is putting together a fiction issue this summer and we are looking for previously unpublished short fiction, up to 4,000 words. We do pay a small fee—in the $300-350 range. Flash fiction/graphic stories, etc. also welcome. (Not entirely sure what the pay scale will be for shorter work but DM me with questions.) Please send work to me before May 1 at collsusanj(at)gmail(dot)com THANKS!”

    NB: If you’re sent a submission to Moment‘s fiction contest, and would like to have the same piece considered for this fiction issue, please re-submit to Susan directly and indicate that you’ve already entered the piece in the contest. Note also that for this opportunity, Susan has indicated that Jewish content “helps” but is “not a strict requirement.”
