Our fiction must have a female protagonist. The writing must be engaging with a unique approach to storytelling and a distinctive authorial voice and style. We want works that explore realistic yet fascinating women tackling universal themes and subjects on a human level or taking an amusing stroll through our crazy world. Our nonfiction interests include feminism, history, nature, environment, social issues, biographies, autobiography, memoir, archaeology, anthropology, multicultural, spiritual, literary criticism, and women’s and gender studies. All from a female perspective.

We are very selective, so take the time to read our author guidelines and look at our most recent books to get an idea of what we're currently collecting. We’re currently interested in fiction that is entertaining, funny, quirky that can touch on serious issues and yet written in a more positive style. Show your writing sense of humor or sly wit.

We’re also actively seeking nonfiction by women, about women, and/or from a female perspective, including biography, historical, the arts, the sciences, nature and nature guides, feminism, cooking, gardening, travel and travel guides, ecology, politics, how-to, and sports.

We are focused on environmental writing with an activist bent.

Please do not submit a novel, unless it imparts an environmental-spiritual teaching. Poems that focus on nature and the urgency with which we need to save our planet, are appreciated. We are also interested in short stories—again, a collection with an environmentally-themed thread that runs throughout.

Blueline seeks poems, stories, and essays relating to the Adirondacks and regions similar in geography and spirit, or focusing on the shaping influence of nature. We also seek essays that interpret the literature and/or culture of the Adirondack region or surrounding areas, including New York State, New England, or eastern Canada. Ecocritical essays or short non-fictional memoirs based in the culture of the region are especially welcome.

We publish both new and established writers and artists in every issue. You'll catch our attention if your writing is vigorous, interesting, and polished. We're not interested in effusive descriptions of scenery. We're looking for realistic approaches to the environment: the writing we publish expresses imagination, reflection, and insight about the natural world. Please proof your work for any errors before submitting. And please be patient: our modest editorial staff reads every submission before we make final announcements in mid-February.

JuxtaProse is an online literary journal that publishes fiction, nonfiction and poetry from around the world. Our contributors have included Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, and Man Booker Prize winners, and other acclaimed authors from fifteen different countries. Alongside these established voices, we make a concentrated effort to publish the work of emerging authors -- including students and previously unpublished authors. Each of our quarterly issues reaches over 10,000 readers.

We believe that good storytelling begins with character. While we will consider any story that possesses literary merit, genre fiction is not our emphasis and will be a particularly difficult sell.

We currently publish approximately 3% of the fiction submissions, 4% of the nonfiction submissions, and less than 1% of the poetry submissions we receive.
