January 2022 open reading period

Jacket2 welcomes unsolicited queries during the month of January 2022. We are especially (though not exclusively) interested in queries of the following kinds:

— Reviews of recent books or anthologies of poetics criticism and theory

— Reviews and articles devoted to poets and poetries outside the US

— Reviews, articles, or essays that put texts, authors, or movements in conversation

— Coauthored reviews or essays

— Articles, essays, or features on the ephemeral, the local, or the emergent; on poetic movements, topics, or groups, rather than single authors

— Articles, reviews, and features that engage with multilingual poetry and/or criticism, and/or poetry in and theories of translation 

— Articles and features that make use of archival and multimedia materials

— Articles, reviews, and features by and/or about queer, nonbinary, trans, and women authors

— Articles, reviews, and features by and/or about BIPOC authors

— Articles, reviews, and features by and/or about visibly and invisibly disabled authors

— Articles, reviews, and features about historically oppressed, underrepresented, or neglected poetic voices

— Proposals for commentary series that explore an archive, poetic movement, theoretical stance, or emergent or historic trend; each series runs twelve weeks, so ideal topics allow for serial exploration or approach

… and especially proposals/submissions that fall under multiple of the above categories. We are considering both queries and completed submissions. Submit your materials via email to info@jacket2.org.
