From the Jewish Currents guidelines:

Founded in 1946, Jewish Currents is a magazine committed to the rich tradition of thought, activism, and culture of the Jewish left. We seek submissions on all things now and Jewish: send us the surprising, rigorous, radical, and trayf. We’re looking for new angles on familiar narratives, in-depth investigations and commentary, dynamic scholarship, book/film/art reviews, and exceptional fiction, poetry, comics, and visual art. We offer competitive rates for our quarterly print issue and website.

Engaging the Jewish world requires a diversity of voices. Alongside honoring the magazine’s Yiddish roots, we actively seek submissions from Sephardi and Mizrachi contributors, and writers who intersect with Jewish life but who aren’t necessarily Jewish (particularly those who identify with other diasporic traditions).
