Editorial Focus

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).

Tips From the Editor

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.
