"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Lockjaw Magazine is currently accepting submissions for its fifth issue!

“We’re a biannual online journal publishing literary ephemera, visual art, music, and video. We like your strange, your uncertain, your prophetic and visionary. We have a preference for shorter work, though we read everything we get. Text-wise, we’re primarily interested in poetry and prose and odd experiments; we do not currently publish nonfiction or essay (sorry, nonfiction and essay). As for everything else, we haven’t seen it yet, so we couldn’t possibly say.

We’re excited to announce that this issue will include guest-editing from Zachary Doss (Black Warrior Review, Banango Street). Submissions are open through November 30. Please visit our website–http://www.lockjawmagazine.com–for detailed guidelines and to check out our previous issues to see if we’re on each others’ level. Or throw caution to the wind and send your stuff to


But yeah, read the guidelines first. Not only is it the right thing to do, it’ll help you level up as a Good Literary Citizen.

(While we are eager to hear from everyone, we’re notably eager to hear from WOC, women, writers across the LGBTQ spectrum, and any and all other marginalized voices.)

Lockjaw Loves You, And Is Looking Forward To Hearing From You Soon,
