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. They 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 nonfictional 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 and polished. We’re not interested in effusive descriptions of scenery. The writing we publish expresses imagination, reflection, and insight about the natural world. The poetry we choose conveys in original ways how language transforms experience instead of just depicting it or simply recording it. The short stories or essays we choose are always realistic and dynamic narratives about nature and our relationships to it. If writers are unfamiliar with Blueline, we encourage them to purchase back copies to discover the span of writing we publish.
