Blueline seeks poems, stories and essays about the Adirondacks and regions similar in geography and spirit, focusing on nature's shaping influence. We also welcome creative nonfiction that interprets the literature or culture of the region, including northern New York, New England and Eastern Canada.
Blueline always publishes both new and established writers. You'll catch our attention if your writing is vigorous, interesting and polished. We're not interested in effusive descriptions of scenery. We are looking for realistic approaches to the environment: the literature we publish expresses imagination, reflection, and insight about the natural world.
The submission period is July through November. Decisions are made mid-February. Payment is made in copies. Simultaneous submissions accepted if identified as such: notify the editors immediately if a simultaneous submission is placed elsewhere. No previously published works.
