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.
I hit “send” for the December 2023 issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0 earlier this morning. Among the dozens of fee-free (and paying) opportunities listed there are several that focus on developing and/or recognizing Jewish work.
- The Jewish Book Council & The Betsy Writers Room Inaugural Writer’s Residency Contest (deadline: December 7).
- Being Jewish on Campus: A Student Writing Challenge (deadline: December 31).
- Lilith Magazine Annual Short Fiction Contest (deadline: December 31).
- Reboot Studios Project Fund (deadline: December 31).
Reminder: As I’ve said before, Jewish work can (and does!) find homes in “secular” or other not-necessarily-“Jewish” publications, presses, and programs. So be sure to check out all of the other opportunities listed in this newsletter issue, too.
