Fig Tree Books (FTB) publishes and promotes high quality, commercially viable works that chronicle and enlighten the unique American Jewish experience (AJE). We are passionate about discovering new voices, as well as expanding the audience for established authors. It is our hope that we will be able to offer fiction and memoirs that speak to the beautiful and sometimes challenging mosaic of the many poignant American Jewish experiences.

We typically describe 'American' as dealing with the people or institutions of the U.S.; this does not mean that the protagonist must be a citizen or that the action must take place exclusively within the U.S. But the book needs to be grounded in American values, culture or history and American readers need to be able to identify with the characters and the story. For us, the 'Jewish experience' means engaging with what it means to be a Jewish American, or how one goes about his or her life practicing (or denying) his/her Judaism, or how one copes with Jewish identity, or deals with social/political/cultural issues associated with being Jewish or interactions between/among Jews and other groups.

Representative Authors: 

Alan Cheuse, Jonathan Papernick, Jessamyn Hope, Ben Nadler, Abigail Pogrebin

We obey no genre and take anything from limericks to fantasy to genres yet invented. Our key desires are originality, accessibility and quality. We like work with a point, something to say or some sort of inner majic that gives greater meaning to the pretty words and thrilling plots. That said, we're not really sure what we’re looking for until we've seen it, so give us a try. Published online monthly, Red Fez Publications features poetry and prose outside of the narrow, academic stream. Red Fez is committed to bringing light to underground and under-recognized writers and writing.

Please do NOT send snail mail submissions. Use the submission form on the website. Read the guidelines and past issues to get a feel for what we like.

FishFood Magazine is dedicated to all forms of creative expression and talent.

FishFood Magazine encourages self-expression from daily life through art. Art tends to serve as a coping mechanism from regular shenanigans and obstacles, and FishFood's main goal is to create a community where artists can share their personal meditation through creativity.

FishFood is an irregularly published magazine that features various literary and art pieces. The online platform also serves as a gateway for multimedia artists to become recognized for their music, films, etc.

Please submit poetry that speak to the readers visually more so than lyrically. We also love micro-fiction! Boy do we love micro-fiction.
