Editorial Focus

Blueline seeks poems, stories, and essays relating to the Adirondacks and regions similar in geography and spirit, or focusing on the shaping influence of nature. We also seek essays that interpret the literature and/or culture of the Adirondack region or surrounding areas, including New York State, New England, or eastern Canada. Ecocritical essays or short non-fictional memoirs based in the culture of the region are especially welcome.

Tips From the Editor

We publish both new and established writers and artists in every issue. You'll catch our attention if your writing is vigorous, interesting, and polished. We're not interested in effusive descriptions of scenery. We're looking for realistic approaches to the environment: the writing we publish expresses imagination, reflection, and insight about the natural world. Please proof your work for any errors before submitting. And please be patient: our modest editorial staff reads every submission before we make final announcements in mid-February.
