The Whole Megillah Expands

Beginning the week of March 5, 2012 The Whole Megillah expands to include the interests of those who write Jewish-themed memoir and poetry. I’m very excited about this move! I’ll be including:

  • Interviews with authors and editors
  • Book reviews
  • News of events
  • And more

Stay tuned for a review of Deborah Feldman‘s Unorthodox (Simon & Schuster, 2012) later this week!

    Mazel tov, Barbara! I look forward to your expanded format!

  2. Thanks, Ann! I just came back from AWP and saw that there’s a great need for community. At two sessions on Jewish poetry, someone brought up this specific issue and I thought perhaps The Whole Megillah could help in this regard.

  3. Does this mean you are including adult memoirs, poetry, fiction with Jewish themes? Edith Pearlman – BINOCULAR VISION – brilliant collection of short stories. By the way, saw in PW that there will be a HEREVILLE #2. Whatever your new horizon is and however you get there – much success. Pnina

    • Yes, Pnina, I will be including adult memoirs, poetry, and fiction with Jewish themes. Thanks for the suggestion of Edith Pearlman’s collection. And yes, Barry Deutsch is coming out with a sequel for Hereville. All good things! Thanks for the good wishes.

    I’m so glad that you are diversifying to include Jewish-themed poetry and memoir! I write Jewish-themed books for children, poetry, and memoir. I have published the poetry chapbook Traffic Stop (Finishing Line Press, 2011), and my poetry book Folk Concert is forthcoming from Anaphora Literary Press. Not all of my poems are specifically Jewish-themed. What percentage of a book of poems needs to be Jewish-themed to fit your criteria? Please let me know. Thank you!

    Sincerely,
    Janet Ruth Heller
