Editorial Focus

BALLOONS Lit. Journal (BLJ) is an independent biannual online literary journal of poetry, fiction and art primarily for readers with a youthful spirit. We see it an important mission to bring the art of literature, and the creation of it, to our younger generation.

Tips From the Editor

We invite poetry and fiction submissions by email. All works must be original, previously unpublished and written in English. But if you also have fantastic art and/or photographic work that we think suit the journal, we will let them in too. We won't be too excited seeing conventional materials. We prefer something that is surprising, explosive, unforgettable, extraordinary, mind-blowing, humorous, bold, unique, layered, witty, educational, original...etc. In short, we want something excellent!
