Blue Earth Review: General Submissions

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.

About the Journal

Blue Earth Review is Minnesota State University, Mankato’s literary magazine. Before being wholly revamped and renamed in 2003, BER was published under such titles as Medicine JugThe Muse, and Minnesota River Review.
