Publisher's Description: Juked is an independent literary journal that publishes fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and photography. In publication since 1999, our online edition is updated once or twice a week, and our print publication comes out annually. We love discovering new work by emerging writers, and nearly all of our published material comes from the slush pile. Our past contributors include Ron Carlson, Stephen Graham Jones, Kim Chinquee, Claudia Smith, Tao Lin, Blake Butler, and Shane Jones. Our work has been anthologized in W.W. Norton's New Sudden Fiction, DZANC Books' Best of the Web, Meridian's Best New Poets, and elsewhere. We love to see fiction, nonfiction, and poetry of all stripes and colors, from experimental takes to more traditional approaches, long and short and in between.
Our newest issue (Spring 2014) is 168 pages, 6”x9”, illustrated, and features fiction, nonfiction, and poetry by Michelle Latiolais, Jen Beagin, Nicole Miller, Ray Nayler, Valerie Hsiung, John Duncan Talbird, Teresa Carmody, Lisa Fink, and many more. Included also are interviews with debut novelist James Scott and poet Sandra Simonds.
Read Juked’s recent Summer 2013 online content, including John Oliver Hodges’s “Gary Gets Gary,” Carrie Chappell’s “And Another Thing About the Blue,” Mary Akers’s “Collateral Damage,” Matt Marinovich’s “Family Photo,” R. M. Schappell’s “Pissing for Rockfish,” Valerie Hsiung’s “on the extinction of mankind’s mankind,” Christopher Michel’s “Erie,” and more.
