Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Founded in 2018, Lucky Jefferson is a literary journal and trove that confronts the challenges poets face as they seek publication and exposure. Readers can expect literature that highlights refreshing contemporary perspectives and promotes cultural diversity while fostering inclusive creativity. Lucky Jefferson isn't your typical literary journal—we generate constructive and interactive conversations around poetry, art, and publishing and redefine the way journals are produced and shared with readers and writers. We are proud to feature poets who have never been published, marginalized voices, and those who sought to pursue poetry and writing later in life; we enjoy creating space for budding writers to build an audience and confidence in their work. You can expect to enjoy our publications quarterly or four times a year.

Submissions Policy
Lucky Jefferson accepts sub­mis­sions of unpub­lished poetry 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 and social media press. To keep things fair, previously accepted poets may only submit every other quarter or twice each calendar year. 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.
