Juked: Open To Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone | November 19, 2013

Juked is an established journal that was founded in 1999. They publish poems, short stories, narrative non-fiction, and essays. They are a print journal that also publishes work electronically.

Unlike most print journals that put selected content online, Juked publishes original work electronically. They are always looking for different material to put in their magazine and on their website.

When you are submitting to Juked you have to decide if you want to submit to the print or the electronic edition. If you decide to submit to both, you have to submit your work separately, and you have to submit different pieces.

When you are submitting to the online edition of Juked they have no word count limits when it comes to submitting prose; just send them one piece at a time. For poetry you can send up to five pieces at a time.

In order to submit prose to the print version of Juked your work can be no longer than 2,500 words. They prefer to publish long poems (up to 4 pages) for their print version, or linked poems.

They are open to simultaneous submissions, but they do not consider reprints.

It is easy to submit to Juked through their submission manager, Submittable, however it is important to note that the first categories of submissions are all for the online edition, so you must scroll down to the bottom of the page to reach the print submission section.

Juked accepts less than 5% of the work submitted to them. They generally respond to submissions within three months.

Despite all this confusion between print and electronic editions, Juked is a great place to submit to. Their online work is well organized and thoughtfully presented. The print edition is well bound and the art is carefully chosen. Either way Juked is a great journal. To learn more or to submit, visit their website here: http://www.juked.com/
