Blue Marble Review accepts writing and art from anyone between the ages of 13 and 21.
Please see the guidelines on our SUBMISSION page.
There is no fee to send us your work.
We accept submissions on a rolling basis, so feel free to send us your work anytime.
Simultaneous submissions are fine with us, but please let us know if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
Once we have your work we promise to give it close consideration. Our response time has been running 4-6 weeks (sometimes longer when submissions get heavy)—we're working on making this quicker! If you don’t hear from us after a month feel free to contact us via e-mail at: email@example.com. We respond to all submissions and will let you know if we're able to accept your work for our current issue. In the meantime-keep writing!
Blue Marble Review is published quarterly online in March, June, September, and December. Shorter—'poetry only' issues have been known to appear online in January and July as well. Dates of publication will be announced via Twitter and Instagram.
Yes, along with our gratitude and hearty congratulations, contributors whose work is selected will be paid $25 per published piece, or $75 if your work is chosen for our issue's cover art. Payment will be made via personal check, Venmo, or PayPal.
