Editorial Focus

Blue Lake Review is an online literary magazine looking for the best in fiction and poetry— literature that moves readers and makes them want to keep reading. They are interested in literary fiction and poetry of all types and topics. Issues are published every month.

Tips From the Editor

We are interested in all kinds of poetry except for rhyming poetry. We are looking for literary fiction of all types. Give us something fresh, that moves us, that comes from the heart. We are not looking for something that shows how clever you are, or how large your vocabulary is. Nor are we interested in that which is overly sentimental. The writing must be authentic and pure, absent of false notes. No genre fiction or novel excerpts. We prefer work previously unpublished elsewhere, but will consider work previously published but no longer available elsewhere online.
