Blue Earth Review is looking for ambitious and exuberant works of short fiction, essay, memoir, poetry, and visual art that offer insight, complicate existing conversations, and that enrich our understanding of what it means to be human in this increasingly diverse world. 

Though we consider magazine-length writing, generally, we publish in a small, square, focused format, so we gravitate towards shorter works in which every word matters.

We read general submissions, for all genres, year-round.

We read contest submissions, for all genres, during the summer months.

Send us your submissions via Submittable, and please adhere to our submission guidelines, which can be found on our Submittable page.*

We currently publish our journal twice a year.

If your work is accepted, Blue Earth Review assumes First North American Serial Rights. The author retains all other rights. If your work is accepted, you will be paid with 2 contributor’s copies.

*Due to the high volume of work we receive, our editors are currently working through a large backlog of submissions. Our staff is composed entirely of volunteers, so we do acknowledge that the time between submission and decision can be long. Rest assured that we are always working to shorten this gap
