Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Our mission at Jamii Publishing is to foster the communion of artists from all genres, foster growth in the artistic world, and to bring these arts to the community. We strive to work with artists who are already active in the community as well as those who have a desire to reach outside of their comfort zone and share their art with the larger world. We want to gift books to these dedicated people and help them in turn help others. We publish chapbooks, artbooks, spoken word CD's, broadsides, anthologies, and handmade books for minorities and women as a means of breaking down barriers and creating community.

Primary Editor/Contact Person
Jamii Publishing will open for submissions in the Fall of 2019. Submissions are free. We publish literary poetry. But that definition can be quite broad. We look for things that are unusual and a bit hard to categorize. Slipstream, hybrid, children's poetry, multiple authors, short story, lyric essay, visual/textual is all fine. The manuscript you send to Jamii must be a part of a larger community based project. We love good work, but we don't want poetry that does not come out of the communal spirit. Your work should be tied to a larger project and have a purpose or you should be an artist with a proven track record of volunteer service. We are currently publishing women and writers of color.
