jubilat is a widely distributed American poetry journal published by the MFA Program for Poets & Writers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. From the first issue onward, jubilat has aimed to publish not only the best in contemporary American poetry, but to place it alongside a varied selection of reprints, found pieces, lyric prose, art, and interviews with poets and other artists. Rather than section off these varieties of work, the magazine creates a dialogue that showcases the beauty and strangeness of the ordinary, and how experiments with language and image speak in a compelling way about who we are.
National acclaim and honors
Work from recent issues of jubilat have been chosen by Best American Poetry 2001, 2002, and 2005; The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses 2003 and 2004; and six times for reprint in Harper's magazine. jubilat has also been featured in Poets & Writers, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and on National Public Radio's All Things Considered, and was shown in the New York Public Library's 2002 exhibit New American Literary Magazines. jubilat participates in the Academy of American Poets' National Poetry Month initiative as Media Sponsors, and in the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses' national Lit Mag and Small Press Fairs.
Since 2001, jubilat has co-sponsored the jubilat/Jones Reading Series at the Jones Library in Amherst, Massachusetts.
jubilat is funded by the MFA Program for Poets & Writers, the University of Massachusetts Amherst Arts Council & the University of Massachusetts Amherst Alumni Association; the magazine has also received two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.
