Emily Alice Katz



I am a writer, editor, and musician living in Durham, North Carolina.

I’ve been selected as a mentee for Season 10 of the AWP’s Writer-to-Writer Mentoring Program. My fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in the pages of Flyway, Lilith, Jewish Fiction.net, Main Street Rag, Sky Island Journal, Mud Season Review and Kindred.

I earned a PhD in modern Jewish studies from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2008. My book Bringing Zion Home: Israel in American Jewish Culture, 1948-1967, was published by SUNY Press in 2015. You can hear me talking about the book on this New Books Network podcast. You can find my academic articles here.
