AJL Jewish Fiction Award

The Association of Jewish Libraries Jewish Fiction Award was established in 2017 with generous underwriting from Dan Wyman Books.

All works of fiction with significant Jewish thematic content written in English--novels, short story and flash fiction collections--by a single author published and available for purchase in the United States during 2018 are eligible for the 2019 award. Jewish thematic content means an extended grappling with Jewish themes throughout the book, including Judaism, Jewish history and culture, Jewish identity, etc.

The award will include a $1,000 cash prize as well as support to attend the AJL conference to receive the award.

Please see the Submission Guidelines for further information.
