DIG AND BE DUG

IN RETURN 

Juke Joint is published four times a year: February, May, August, & November.

 

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's hardly a handful left—most of them in the Mississippi Delta. 

 

We uphold this spirit of defiance, searching for 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).
 

Submissions & other correspondence should be sent to:  jukejointmag@gmail.com
