Submission Calls: Lilith Magazine

Indepent, Jewish and Frankly Feminist

Help Lilith's editors mark the magazine's 100th issue! Nominate your favorite great (even good) Jewish feminist ideas-past, present & future. You can nominate as many ideas as you like--using 25 words or less for each--so get creative!

Anything from slicing bagels before you freeze them, to non-sexist prayers, to the invention of a Jewish feminist magazi--oh, wait. Don't feel constrained by these examples--we want to know what great Jewish feminist ideas you've seen...or are waiting to see.

But act now! We need to receive your nominations by July 15th in order to publish our 100 picks in Fall 2008, so please email them asap to Lilith's editors at We can't wait to hear from you!

Lilith magazine invites submissions of edgy, exciting poetry touching in any way on Jewish women's experience for the second annual The Charlotte Newberger Prize in Jewish Women's Poetry at Lilith. Winning poets will receive a cash award, publication in the renowned independent Jewish women’s magazine, and the possibility of a public reading. For 29 years, Lilith magazine has been one of the rare publications to feature poetry alongside its investigative reports, scholarship, memoirs and fiction. This first-ever poetry prize at Lilith is named for a woman who has been a longtime supporter of the arts in Chicago and on the national scene.

LILITH'S commitment to publishing poetry is an essential dimension of the magazine's creativity, and shows a recognition that poetry by Jewish women, on Jewish themes, is a burgeoning aspect of American—and Jewish--culture, said poet Alicia Ostriker. Lilith is uniquely wonderful as a source for Jewish girls and women of all ages.

Submission instructions:

  • Poets are invited to submit up to three poems, in hard copy only.
  • Each poem not to exceed 100 lines in length.
  • Include name and contact information, including e-mail and phone numbers, on each page submitted.
  • Send a stamped, self-addressed envelope for the return of any manuscript.
  • Entires must be postmarked by November 30, 2008.
