About

Hi! I’m Nora Gold, a writer, and also the creator and editor of an online literary journal called Jewish Fiction .net. I’ve done several different things besides writing so far (activism, teaching, research, and was even a therapist), but most importantly at present, I am a writer. 

My first novel, Fields of Exile, was recently published!  http://www.noragold.com/portfolio/fields-of-exile/ Check it out and happy reading!

My previous book, Marrow and Other Stories - http://www.noragold.com/portfolio/marrow-and-other-stories/ -won one of the Canadian Jewish Book Awards, and also was shortlisted for the Danuta Gleed Award, a prize for the best first short story collection in Canada.

To find out more about me or my writing, please visit my website at http://www.noragold.com or follow me on twitter (@NoraGold), facebook, or LinkedIn.

You can also read (for free) the online journal I edit, at http://www.jewishfiction.net/index.php/current-issue/. So far we’ve published over 200 first-rate Jewish-themed stories from all around the world that were originally written in English or eleven other languages, but have never before been published in English.

I am delighted you’ve come to visit my Profile page on Wattpad. I think Wattpad is a wonderful initiative, and I am honoured to be one of its Featured authors. I hope you enjoy my novella, Flesh, and I appreciate your taking the time to read and comment on it. Thanks in advance, and Enjoy!

But you could always tell when someone was going to Expo. In addition to looking like a tourist (the big, floppy hat necessary against the summer sun, and the obligatory camera and canteen), you also...

Dear unrealli, thank you so much for your wonderful (and intelligent!) comment. You've made my day! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm about my writing. As it happens, I published a novel a few months ago, and maybe this will interest you. It's called Fields of Exile. Thanks again, unrealli, and best of luck to you in your own writing.

Dear sweetisme, I'm sure wrote to you after seeing this poem awhile ago, and same as then, I am very, very touched that you wrote this poem inspired by "Flesh," and that you dedicated it to me. That is such a high compliment to an author. Thank you so much, sweetisme. And wouldn't it be wonderful if someone read your poem and really listened to what you say in it?

Really? Authors don't answer you when you compliment their work? How rude! How bizarre! I am so grateful that people are reading my work and then take the time to write me and say they like it. Thank you again.
