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.
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.
Our newest issue (Spring 2012) is 136 pages, 6"x9", illustrated and features fiction and poetry by Matthew Baker, Ron Carlson, David O'Connell, Sandra Simonds, Paul Griner, Rachel Dacus, Todd Grimson, and more. Included also are interviews with Kim Addonizio and Caitlin Horrocks. To view the full table of contents, click here.
Our Spring 2011 issue is 156 pages, 6" x 9", illustrated, and features fiction by James Scott, Vanessa Carlisle, Jen Gann, J.A. Tyler, Andrew Roe, non-fiction by Ira Sukrungruang, and poetry by Chris Haven, Scott Abels, Elizabeth O'Brien, Paul Hlava, and more. Interviews with bestselling author Lauren Groff (The Monsters of Templeton) and poet Campbell McGrath. It's a grab bag of goodies: fiction ranges from historical fiction to magical realism to humor to experimental, lyrical prose; long and short poems, language-oriented and narrative.
