Hadassah Magazine Submission Guidelines
Thank you for your inquiry about writing an article for Hadassah Magazine.
As a matter of policy, the magazine does not assign articles to authors who have not previously written for us, but we do give a careful and considered reading to all manuscripts that are submitted. However, we suggest that you first query your story idea (please include some writing samples) so we can let you know if it interests us.
We want stories on Jewish life in the United States, in communities around the world and in Israel. We focus mostly, but not exclusively, on women and issues impacting women. We feature profiles, issue-oriented and trend stories as well as personal essays, travel and health-related stories. While holiday stories, immigrant and roots sagas, trips to Israel and Holocaust tales are important themes, we receive many of them, so we would only be looking for such pieces with a new and different angle.
We are interested in fresh, timely articles but bear in mind, as a bimonthly, we work about three to six months ahead. We appreciate objective, lively writing with lots of quotes and color. Speeches and research reports generally do not translate into publishable features.
Please note that we rarely publish fiction and do not publish poetry.
Our main features and travel pieces range in word length from 1,200 to over 2,000; Most of our other stories are 1,200 words or fewer.
Please address submissions to Libby Barnea. Email is greatly preferred. Or mail submissions to:
40 Wall Street
New York, NY 10005
For book review inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please know that because of the high volume of submissions we receive, we only get back to writers whose stories and ideas we plan to pursue. —The Editors
