Jai-Alai Magazine publishes poetry, fiction, essays, and black & white drawings. The magazine began with the Spring 2011 Issue (#10) and will end with the Fall 2015 issue (#1). Each issue is a limited edition, with a series of interlinking covers designed by kaleidoscope. The goal of the project is to foment literary life in Miami, FL. We have a special interest in pieces about or exploring Miami and a commitment to publishing work-in-translation.

Jai-Alai does not throw away or recycle unpublished submissions. Provided it conforms to our guidelines, every submission we receive will be placed into an unedited archive that will serve as an additional documentation of Miami's literary life during the years of the magazine's production. Please read our submission page carefully if you're interested in participating.

With a few notable exceptions, Jai-Alai is sold in the same places we accept submissions: in unique drop-boxes designed by local artists and hosted by local businesses. For a full list of locations, photos of the drop-boxes, and information on the artists, see our Purchase page.
