Submit! New Writing on Justice

via New Pages:

J Journal: New Writing on Justice examines its subject 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. Unlike other CJ publications, J Journal, which comes out twice a year, is the country’s first to present its analyses of contemporary justice issues through creative, not scholarly work.

The short stories, poems, and personal narratives in each volume expand reflection on the question: What is justice?

Submission Guidelines
J Journal seeks new writing – fiction, creative nonfiction (1st person narrative, personal essay, memoir) and poetry – that examines questions of justice. Although we find that our most powerful pieces relate tangentially to the justice theme, we also welcome work that speaks directly of crime, criminal justice, law and law enforcement. As a literary project, however, J Journal is less likely to publish straightforward genre fiction. We encourage writers to approach the justice issue from any angle.

Send up to three poems or up to 6000 words of fiction/nonfiction to:

New York, NY 10019

Manuscripts must be accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope for reply only. All manuscripts will be recycled. No e-mail or fax submissions.
