Featuring: Elizabeth Poliner, Rachel Kadish, Margot Singer, Sarah Seltzer, Lauren Grodstein
AWP Conference 2024
Within the rich tradition of Jewish-American fiction, distorted and stereotypical depictions of Jewish women abound, often sourcing from male writers. This panel of award-winning Jewish women novelists will explore a more authentic, multidimensional vision of Jewish women on the page, one that captures the variety, complexity, and layers of truth about Jewish women’s lives. This craft panel is for all writers who create against patriarchal bias and cultural stereotypes.
