"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

All prose submissions should be under 750 words.”

Some Timely Call for Submissions Love <3 Justice

J JOURNAL: NEW WRITING on Justice seeks submissions for its 19th issue.

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.

Email up to three poems or up to 6000 words of fiction/nonfiction to: submissionsjjournal@gmail.com

Or send  your submission to:

Editors, J Journal
Department of English
John Jay College of Criminal Justice
524 West 59th Street, 7th Floor
New York, NY 10019
