Editorial Focus

J Journal examines justice through creative work, directly and tangentially. Housed at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, one of the nation’s premier criminal justice institutions, J Journal’s contributors have included established and new writers, professionals in the law enforcement field, lawyers, professors in the humanities and social sciences, and prison inmates.

Tips From the Editor

We're not interested in genre writing. Some of our best fiction, poetry and first-person narratives approach justice issues from outside the traditional field of crime, law, prison writing. We seek strong literary work first.
