Editorial Focus

Blair is a small, independent press interested in publishing voices from beyond the mainstream. We publish prose and poetry by underrepresented writers such as women, people of color, authors with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ authors.

Please read our mission statement and submissions page on our website. We do not accept genre fiction, religious writing, children's stories that are just about cute cartoonish animals. We do not accept unsolicited fiction and poetry outside of our contests. Unsolicited nonfiction proposals can be sent to
