Part of our collective Jewish responsibility is to remember. In commemoration of Yom HaShoah, Oy!Chicago is looking for guest writers of all writing experience levels to contribute to our next special blog series, "We Will Never Forget," a collection of first-person blog posts about how our lives have been impacted by survivors of the Holocaust and their stories.
Whether you are the descendant of a survivor, or simply wouldn't be here today if it weren't for a survivor; whether you have made sharing a survivor's story part of your mission or had one meaningful moment when a survivor touched your life, we want to get your story -- and their story -- out there.
To pitch your idea, write a paragraph describing what your piece would be about and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org Friday, April 15.
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 May 2-6.
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!
