Tips From the Editor

Simultaneous Submission: We do accept simultaneous submissions, but ask to be informed immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. Also, please do not send multiple submissions; wait for us to respond to your manuscript before sending another. Format: typed, double-spaced, numbered pages, and brief cover letter. Please make sure your name is on the first page of your manuscript. Reply: Response time is two to six months. Rights: We purchase first North American serial rights and non-exclusive electronic rights for our website, if we choose. Blue Mesa Review does not consider work that has been previously published in print or online. Rights revert to the author upon publication.
