Blue Earth Review publishes fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry. We try to publish the very best submissions we receive.

Please include a brief author bio. with your writing.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted. We ask that writers notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere.

We consider only previously unpublished work. If we accept yours for publication, we assume First North American Serial Rights. All other rights remain with the writer. Payment is two contributor's copies.

There is no specific word or page count. We will publish the very best stories we receive, be they flash fiction or longer. We do hope you keep it under 15 manuscript pages, though.

Please submit no more than one story at a time. Please provide the title of your story when prompted for a title for your submission.

File types accepted: Word (.doc and .docx). 

We are interested in creative nonfiction (memoir and personal essay) with contemporary themes. No literary criticism.

Though there is no specific word or page count, Blue Earth Review is most interested in essays that are under 3,000 words. We love nonfiction that works on more than just a narrative level. Surprise us with metaphor and layers of meaning. We can't wait to read your work!

Please provide the title of your piece when prompted for a title for your submission.

File types accepted: Word (.doc and .docx).

We consider poetry in any style.

Please limit poetry submissions to no more than five poems at a time and place all poems in a single document. 

If you wish to withdraw just part of your submission, please send an email notifying us which poems are still available. Withdrawing the entire submission through Submittable will remove all of your poems from consideration. 

File types accepted: Word (.doc and .docx).

We publish reproductions (color or black-and-white) of a wide range of artwork: paintings, photography, woodcuts, ink drawings, sculpture, and more. Usually we feature one work on the front cover plus an interior layout of several additional works. Our preference is for groupings that display an engaging variety within some overall thematic unity.  Submissions should include six to fifteen images.
Donors at each level will be listed for the year and receive a complimentary subscription.

Donations of any amount are tax-deductible subject to IRS regulations.
