In addition to its excellent content, the latest issue of Moment magazine announces two particularly interesting (and free) events.
First, on December 9, Moment will celebrate the most recent winners of the Moment-Karma Short Fiction Contest. Geraldine Brooks, who judged this year's contest, will also participate. This event will take place in New York City; for more information, click here. (By the way, the deadline for the next competition is coming up on December 1. For details, click here.)
And on Monday, December 22, Moment and the Foundation for Jewish Culture will present this year's Emerging Writer Awards "to showcase talented writers who have published at least one book, but have not yet received widespread recognition." This year's winner of the Goldberg Prize for Fiction is Anya Ulinich for Petropolis; the Handelsman Prize for Non-fiction is Harry Bernstein for The Invisible Wall. The awards presentation and reception will take place in Washington, DC. Click here for details.
