Subject: Jewish Fiction.net seeks translations

Jewish Literary Journal, Jewish Fiction .net, seeks translations into 
English of Yiddish works (that have not yet been published in English)

Jewish Fiction .net (www.jewishfiction.net) is an online literary journal 
committed to showcasing the finest Jewish writing (either written in, or 
translated into, English), and creating a virtual home for writers and 
readers of Jewish fiction from around the world. Last year (our first 
year), 15,000 people from 65 countries read the stories and novel excerpts 
in our journal, including wonderful works originally written in Yiddish by 
Shira Gorshman, Chava Rosenfarb, and
Yehoshue Perle.

We at Jewish Fiction .net greatly cherish Yiddish literature, and are 
seeking, for future issues, translations into English of Yiddish works 
that have not yet been published in English. We would very much like to 
include in our journal at least one piece per issue that is translated 
from Yiddish. Our usual word length is 6,000 words, but there is some 
flexibility on this. To send us your translated work, please visit our 
Submissions page at 
http://www.jewishfiction.net/index.php/contactus/submission or contact the 
editor, Dr. Nora Gold, at nora.gold at jewishfiction.net.
Please do not use the "reply" key when writing to Mendele. Instead, direct 
your mail as follows:

include the author's name as you would like it to appear.

In order to spare the shamosim time and effort, we request that 
contributors adhere, when applicable, as closely as possible to standard 
English punctuation, grammar, etc. and to the YIVO rules of 
transliteration into Latin letters. A guide to Romanization can be found 
at this site:
