We consider poetry and fiction in any style. Please limit poetry submissions to no more than five poems at a time and place all poems in a single document. We are interested in creative nonfiction (memoir and personal essay) with contemporary themes. No literary criticism. Though there is no specific word or page count for fiction or creative nonfiction, Blue Earth Review is most interested in works that are under 3,000 words.
We aim to publish a rich variety of short fiction and poetry, penned by both emerging and established writers. We tend to select work that reflects positivity and kindness, and while we publish several genres, we have a soft spot for both romance and women's fiction.
Take a look at our previously published pieces of fiction and poetry to gain an idea of what we are looking for. Additionally, keep an eye on our upcoming themed contests.
We’re seeking work that’s energetic, imaginative, and original. Send us fiction with strong, idiosyncratic voices, creative nonfiction that honestly and eloquently strips all pretenses away, and poetry that uses language with power and precision.
To get a feeling for the work we publish, we encourage you to consult the issues available on our website. When you feel ready, please read our submission guidelines and then send us your best work, along with a third-person bio of 100 words or less.

You’re a writer. We like writers. Writers like being read, and we like to read. Ergo (ergo!), if you send us writing, we’re going to see eye-to-eye pretty easily.
