The juke joint has always been a place beyond the margin, somewhere along the line. Barrelhouses of the South, juke joints served as a place for sharecroppers & plantation workers to socialize & celebrate counterculture in a society marred by Jim Crow. Today, there are hardly a handful left, most of them in the Mississippi Delta. At Juke Joint, we aim to uphold this spirit of defiance, striving to find unconventional Southern (& non-Southern) voices in poetry. Send us your lyrical, your narrative, your found, your erased, your not-quite-sure-it's-a-poem poem(s).

Read every day, if you can, & read past issues. If we don't jive with your work the first time around, take it in stride & try again. The process is so inherently fickle. Don't give up on your work or us.

April Gloaming Publishing is a Nashville-based independent press that aims to capture and better understand the Southern soul, Southern writing, and the Southern holler. 

In the words of William Faulkner, to be Southern is to, "Tell about the South. What do they do there. How do they live there. Why do they live at all." April Gloaming seeks to arrive at the conclusions to these questions through amplifying the voices of the unbridled holler.
