Ijagun Poetry Journal
Submission Guidelines URL
From the Editor
Ijagun is a poetry journal committed to publishing new and emerging poets. We don’t want to hear from our master “griots” alone; we want to hear from those mastering their art too. We are interested in the poetic works of budding poets. We also welcome the works of established poets in order to encourage the poetic genius of those mastering poetic art. We prize original works that conform to or break conventions. Ijagun presents a platform for poetic development for those who possess the propensity for creative maturity.
We accept all forms of poetry. We want poetry that tells us something new about ourselves, about the things and people around us, about our world. We are interested in poetry that nibbles at something in us, poetry that performs wonders with words. Please, submit 2-3 unpublished poems in doc or docx. Ensure you make your submission in one attachment. No simultaneous submission please. We also accept reviews and essays on poetry. Please, send a logical, thought-provoking and well-articulated review or essay of 1000-1500 words in doc or docx. All works should be sent as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, indicate the type of submission and your surname in the subject line of your e-mail. Example: “Poetry – Adisa”. Besides, include your name(s) and contact information in your submission. We accept submissions on a rolling basis. However, ensure you get a reply on a work sent before you make another submission. We will try as much as possible to get back to you within 2-3 weeks of your submission. IJAGUN is a small independent poetry journal. Please, be patient with us. We are waiting to read your works; the world is waiting too!
