Placing Your Jewish Short Stories

At the Jewish Fiction Writers' Conference held at the 92nd Street Y last weekend, I shared a handout with detailed profiles of a number of publications that will consider short stories on Jewish themes or subjects. I can't replicate the handout in its entirety here, but I can share with you the 11 publications whose editors supplied me with information and confirmed their interest in such work.

Bridges: A Jewish Feminist Journal (guidelines here)
The Forward (guidelines here)
Horizons: The Jewish Family Monthly (guidelines here)
Image: A Journal of the Arts and Religion (guidelines here)
Jewish Quarterly: A Magazine of Contemporary Writing, Politics & Culture
Lilith (guidelines here)
New Vilna Review (guidelines here)
Pakn Treger
Poetica Magazine: A Literary Journal on the Jewish Experience (guidelines here)
Tiferet: A Journal of Spiritual Literature (guidelines here)

NB: Magazines/journals that did not respond to my questionnaire include Guilt & Pleasure, Heeb, Jewish Currents, Midstream, and Mishpacha.And of course, please do remember that stories with "Jewish" content can certainly find homes in "secular" publications.
