About

The Jitney

The Jitney blog features fresh ad-free content written by Miami area writers.

Some contributors are paid.

Others use the platform as a means of expression.

We aim to publish daily with a focus on arts and culture.

Our interests are to cover the Miami media market, from West Palm Beach down to Key West.

The Jitney blog is currently accepting ideas for coverage. And we are currently looking for writers. For inquiries contact jitneybooks@gmail.com

Jitney Books

Jitney Books publishes novels, short story collections, memoirs, and screenplays by Miami-area writers writing about Miami. We are interested in telling real Miami stories, human stories, not the Miami stories you see in pop culture.

All of our covers feature art work by Miami street artists.

Jitney Books is currently closed for submissions, but we have published nine titles in the last year.

Jitney Books Approach

Jitney Books aims to fill two voids in publishing.

1. Create new journalism for a media market lacking in voices that publish original and credible journalism.

2. Serve emerging and mid-career writers and playwrights who are either unable to connect with the corporate publishing world, or, who would rather not connect with mainstream publishing.
