Writers wanted for The Jewish Tribune, FeatherLit, Echolocation, and Quills Canadian Poetry Magazine

The Jewish Tribune ( is Canada’s largest Jewish weekly newspaper. More than 62,000 copies of the paper are distributed across Canada each week, going to Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Windsor, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Hamilton, and Halifax.

The Tribune provides its readers with timely news of concern to the grassroots Jewish community in Canada. And while we carry our share of features, book/film/theatre reviews, arts/culture, and sports articles, we focus on news reports from our correspondents and news services to ensure our readers get the real story – and the story behind the story – from a Jewish perspective.

The Tribune also carries insightful opinion and analysis pieces, both from internationally known pundits such as Daniel Pipes and Canadians such as Brian Henry. From the political issues of the Middle East to the hate crimes and antisemitic incidents in Canada and the rest of the world, the Jewish Tribune has you covered.
