From the Jacket2 team

Publishing during the COVID-19 crisis

Like many of you, we are adapting to increased safety measures around COVID-19 at the University of Pennsylvania and other campuses. Our work here at Jacket2 will likely be delayed and/or interrupted; our publication schedule for both commentaries and J2 content at large will be slower than usual as we adapt to the global pandemic. Many of our editors are working remotely, and we will continue to curate Jacket2 as a space to convene and sustain a life in/through poetry during times of scarcity, stress, and shifting imagined communities. We remain committed to bringing you open access content when institutional access and travel for research become compromised and complicated. 

A note from the editors and publishers of Jacket2:

A note from Divya Victor

Jacket2 bids farewell to our fellow editor

It is hard to express how much Divya Victor has enriched and expanded Jacket2 since we first welcomed her as a (then-guest) editor in 2017. From the two commentary series shes contributed, to the thoughtful and wide-reaching features shes curated, not to mention the tireless work shes done behind the scenes to make Jacket2s editorial process more equitable, affirming, and innovative, Divyas presence as a member of the J2 team will be sorely missed. It is with sadness — but excitement for Divya as a thinker and writer — that we say goodbye to Divya as a J2 editor.
