The Blue is a Southern publication, but we do not define the boundaries of that interpretation. That is up to you, the artist, to consider and reflect upon when you give your material that final once-over before you do us the honor of reviewing the phrases and imagery. There are no lofty goals to meet, only the expectation that all submissions of poetry, prose, and photography/visual arts are carefully thought-out, thoroughly edited, and sent in by the appropriate deadline.
As it stands, The Blue will be published four times a year. See our Submissions page for deadlines. The hope for 2018 is that one print issue, the Best of The Blue Mountain Review, will be sold by subscription, with one issue of the same per year. Please note: once you have a piece accepted and published, you can’t have it removed.
