Editorial Focus

Bellevue Literary Review is a unique literary magazine that examines human existence through the prism of health and healing, illness and disease. We invite submissions of previously unpublished works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that touch upon these themes.

Tips From the Editor

We seek character-driven fiction with original voices and strong settings. We do not publish genre fiction (romance, sci-fi, horror). While we are always interested in creative explorations in style, we do lean toward classic short stories.
We are looking for essays that reach beyond the standard ‘illness narrative’ to develop a topic in an engaging and original manner. (No academic discourses or works with footnotes. )
We encourage poems that are accessible to a wide audience. Characteristics we look for are vivid writing, strong narrative, and rendering the familiar new.
