Are you Jewish, single and trying to navigate through life in Chicago as an unchained 20 or 30-something? Oy!Chicago is looking for guest writers of all writing experience levels to contribute to our next special blog series, "Single, Jewish and Figuring It Out," a collection of first-person stories that captures the scope of single Jewish life in Chicago.
Whether you want so share your misadventures in searching for the right gefilte fish in the sea, the challenges and successes of finding Jewish community in the Windy City or any observations and reflections about what it means to be a single Jew figuring stuff out -- we want to help you get published!
To pitch your idea, write a paragraph describing what your piece would be about and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, Jan 19.
The only other requirements are that the post should in some way relate to the theme, and that you are 21 or older. We will review your submission and let you know if we are interested in working with you and running your piece in the series, which will run Feb. 8-12.
Please note that Oy!Chicago is a volunteer-staffed website, so we are unable to pay for published submissions at this time.
Thanks for your interest!
