About Us

Poetry is pleasure. To the ear, to the heart, to the mind, it enhances and defines the spirit, the soul. It’s the work of soul-making, both reading it and writing it.

Founded in 2017 in Toronto, Juniper is an online poetry journal that publishes three times a year: February, June, and October.

Editorial focus: Juniper seeks poems that bring the reader back to themselves and leave them with a deeper understanding of the world(s) in which they live.

Selected poems from Juniper appear in the Best Canadian Poetry Anthology for 2020, 2021, and 2022 (forthcoming).
