Hello beautiful people!
I am going to make a short, sweet and shameless pitch. I spend much of my time working on meaningful education, social justice and Jewish community-related programs. One of the ideas that I generated at the conference I am attending in Jerusalem is less “deep”, but fills a niche and would be incredibly fun to read, write, live and share: Jewrotica.
It’s exactly what it sounds like and would include everything ranging from super-PG romance stories (think chaste “bonnet ripper” style) to exploring the sexual tension in communities that prohibit touch between men and women to all-out guilty pleasure reads that happens to be set in the Jewish community with Jewish cultural overtones.
The format could be full-length novels set in Jewish communities, a series of short stories or even true confessions brought together in a blog or book. I have already received interest from writers and I am participating in an ideas competition that will only be open for the next ~12 hours or so until 8 AM Israel time (1 AM Eastern).
Check out the project here and please vote for it by clicking the website’s “Like” button. A quick registration is required, but it only takes one minute to vote.
Thanks and – if this comes to fruition – you’ll definitely enjoy! 🙂
