What are the AJIL's

Literary Criteria?

Inventions: should be original, interesting, and archetypal.

 

Convention: your writing can be surprising, but it should not be "experimental."

 

Craft: avoid mundane contemporary speech

 

Poetic Diction, Figures and Techniques:

 Use these in your poetry,

and of course in your poetic essays, please!

 

Noble Affect: the emotional flavor of the piece should be fine, noble, high-minded and morally sound.

 

Beauty: your writing should create an aesthetic effect

on the reader's mind.
