Blue Mesa Review[edit]

Is a literary journal that was created in the creative writing program at the University of New Mexico[1] in 1989. Blue Mesa Review publishes one print issue annually, and as of 2012 one online issue annually, Blue Mesa Review Online. Blue Mesa Review publishes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. You can submit to BMR via their online submission manager, submittable. BMR also has yearly poetry and fiction contests, please check their website for more details.

History[edit]

Originally founded by Rudolfo Anaya, Gene Frumkin, David Johnson, Patricia Clark Smith, and Lee Bartlette in 1989, the Blue Mesa Review emerged as a source of innovative writing produced in the Southwest. Over the years the magazine’s nuance has changed, sometimes shifting towards more craft-oriented work, other times re-aligning with its original roots.

Currently[edit]

Currently run by MFA Candidates out of UNM's CW Program, Blue Mesa Review has gone through many changes over the years and is simply looking for high quality writing these days. Writing submitted doesn't necessarily have to be focused on the Southwest, although that's always appreciated. Innovation and good writing are at the heart of this literary journal's aesthetic.
