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 believe that publishing speculative fiction isn’t just printing words on the page — it’s the act of weaving brand new worlds. We believe in great storytelling. We believe in challenging genre boundaries and engaging the fundamental human drive to tell stories that resonate emotionally. The way we do this is by partnering with great writers to craft and edit the best fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction stories possible. By creating beautiful, well designed paperbacks and ebooks. By growing their publicity. And by fostering a family of authors and editors excited to work with us.

Check our anthology guidelines for short fiction opportunities.

The A3 Review is a literary magazine that behaves like a map, made by the folks who make Writing Maps. Prose and poetry pieces are written with a 150-word limit in response to a themed monthly writing contest. Twelve winners are published in the biannual review, and three overall winners receive cash prizes. Total cash prizes is £475 (approx. $620).

We are looking for original and creative responses to our monthly themed contests. Experimental work is encouraged. We accept all forms and genres of writing and artwork. Poems, flash fiction, a graphic story or a snippet of memoir... as long as it's under 151 words and fits into an A6 panel.
