The Junket is an online quarterly featuring essays, short fiction and poetry. Founded in 2011, it exists as an excuse for writing: to justify the graft of its making, and indulge the mischief it continues to make. Most contributors are directly commissioned, but the editors will also consider submissions of no more than 2000 words of prose or 100 lines of poetry, which should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We regret that we are unable to respond to all submissions.
