Just a reminder that the Jewish Fiction Writers' Conference scheduled for Sunday, March 15, 2009, at the 92nd Street Y in New York City is currently accepting early-bird registrations. But time for the discount is running out! You have until February 16 to save on the registration fee (it's $115 until then, and $135 until March 9, when registration closes). Your conference registration will include a kosher breakfast and lunch.
And it will include the chance to attend numerous focused presentations—including the one I am having a lot of fun preparing. My session on "Publishing Your Jewish Short Stories" will include up-to-date information from all the magazine and journal editors who are so kindly responding to my inquiries at the moment. Plus lots of other guidance from someone who has managed to publish her share of Jewish-themed short fiction (in Lilith, Mississippi Review Online, TriQuarterly, and several others). Haven't managed to publish a book-length collection, though, which is why I, personally, am eager to hear what the agent/editor types presenting that day will have to tell us.
