Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Josephine Quarterly (ISSN 2334-5888) is an online literary magazine celebrating the resilience and voices of underrepresented poets. We seek poets who know the act of resistance and healing. Josephine Quarterly was founded in 2012 by poets Komal Mathew and Jenny Sadre-Orafai, poets who are based in Atlanta. We aim to publish four issues a year, but we are always reading and are interested in work from both established and new voices.

Submissions Policy
Josephine Quarterly accepts only unpublished poetry and art. Please submit up to 5 poems of any length (.doc, .docx, .rtf, and .pdf). For art, please submit up to 2 images (.jpeg, .gif, and .png). Artwork should be able to fit A6 dimensions (105mm × 148mm or 4.13" × 5.83") and should be as high a resolution as your computer can manage. Simultaneous submissions are welcome as long as the editors are immediately notified if your work is accepted elsewhere. If a poem has been accepted elsewhere and it is still under consideration with us, please add a note within your submission via Submittable. There is no fee to submit and we award our contributors $30 per poem or art piece. We also nominate select contributors for the Best of the Net Anthology and for Pushcart Prizes. We only accept art and poetry submissions via the online submission manager, Submittable. We will only consider one submission at a time, which we ask for you to respect since we only accept 200 submissions a month. Our response time is 7-10 weeks.
