On What Criteria Does the

AJIL Judge Submissions? 

Literary Inventions: should be original, interesting, aesthetically effective, and archetypally resonant.


Literary Convention: each piece should interface with it gracefully, un-ironically, and effectually.


Full Potential of Language: each piece should consistently explore it in some particular direction


Poetic Diction, Figures and Techniques: in poetry, certain of them should be attempted with each piece, and success should be achieved. In stories, the corresponding suitable techniques, diction, and figures will of course be assessed.


Human Affect:  regardless of what is represented in the piece, whether high or low, good or bad, the affective flavor of the piece should be of the noblest, finest, and soundest.
