Red Thread is happy to welcome you home. We’re a Detroit-based publication serving a readership of young, Jewish engagers who are interested in the issues that relate to our generation.

Our team of clever writers work hard to offer up an endless, albeit virtual, Sunday brunch of community and economic news, reviews, events listings and perspectives that will make you plotz.

Red Thread is a sister publication of the Detroit Jewish News and owned by Jewish Renaissance Media. We are supported by advertising (and tacitly encouraged by He Who Has No Name).

Writing for Red Thread

Red Thread welcomes submissions from freelance writers. Please submit your pitch — including a description of what you’d like to write, a thumbnail biography, links to previously published stories, and, if necessary, a short writing sample — to the editor. Please be familiar with the magazine and indicate what section you believe your piece would fit best in.
