Jewish Currents welcomes literary submissions from writers at all stages of their careers. We are currently accepting submissions in the following categories:

  • Creative nonfiction, including essays and memoir (7,500 words maximum)
  • Fiction (1,500 – 7,500 words)
  • Flash fiction (under 1,500 words)
  • Poetry (submit up to four poems at a time in a single document)

All literary work must be submitted via Submittable, including creative nonfiction, which we rarely accept solely from the pitch. We do not accept more than one submission at a time from a single contributor. Though we may infrequently publish excerpts from published work, we prefer previously unpublished manuscripts. Please allow at least 12 weeks for a response.
