Blue Marble Review is a quarterly online literary journal showcasing the creative work of young writers ages 13-21. We welcome poetry, fiction, personal essays, travel stories, and opinion pieces as well as art and photography. The goal of our journal is to assemble in each issue, a broad range of voices, perspectives, and life experiences.
Editor Molly Hill is a Minneapolis based writer who founded Blue Marble Review as a creative experiment for young writers. Every issue is a collective effort made possible by the generosity and time of our various editors-at-large, sparked by the stellar students from the Minnetonka Writing Center, and illuminated by the many writers and artists who send us imaginative work from all over the globe.*
*In December of 1972, astronauts Eugene Cernan, Ronald Evans, and Jack Schmitt captured the iconic Blue Marble image from the Apollo 17 spacecraft, inspiring explorers and dreamers everywhere and encompassing a world of stories.
