Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Founded in 2018, Lucky Jefferson is an award-winning literary journal that generates interactive conversations around poetry and art by reforming the way journals are produced and shared. Lucky Jefferson is proud to feature poets and writers who have never been published, marginalized perspectives, and those who sought to pursue writing later in life. We exist to create spaces for those who wish to see themselves represented more boldly in the world; and we help those same few build an audience and reimagine joy for their work. You can enjoy our print publications quarterly or four times a year.

Submissions Policy
Lucky Jefferson accepts sub­mis­sions of unpub­lished poetry, flash fiction, and hybrid forms on sub­jects relating to the current issue. When submitting: Send no more than three poems in a submission. Poems should be submitted in a single file, with poems separated by titles or page breaks. Include a cover page highlighting the poet’s name, email address, bio (third-person, 50 words max), and mailing address. Accepted poets will receive one copy of the issue in which their work appears. To keep things fair, previously accepted poets/writers should wait 2 quarters, or two issues, from the time of acceptance, before submitting new work to any open call. We ask for exclusive first worldwide print and electronic rights for up to three months from date of acceptance and non-exclusive rights to include published works in our archive indefinitely.
