Tips From the Editor

Blue Earth Review 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. We do not accept literary criticism. Blue Earth Review is most interested in works that are under 3,000 words of prose or under 10 pages of poetry.
