Dear readers and contributors: Thanks very much for your patience. We are putting the finishing touches on Issue 24, which has been delayed due to the Coronavirus. We plan to have it out in the next week or so. We are currently reading for Issue 25, which will come out in Spring 2021. Submit your best poetry and prose by March 1, 2021.
Due to circumstances related to the Coronavirus, we need to push back the release of Issue 24 to the Fall of 2020. Our hope is to have it up by the beginning of September. We sincerely apologize for the delay.
The deadline for submissions for Issue #24 has been extended to March 15th. Undergraduates–submit your best poetry and prose for consideration. Remember, we’re a paying market! (see Submission Guidelines for details).
Undergraduate writers: The Blue Route is again open for submissions. After reading the submission guidelines, please feel free to send us your best poetry and prose for consideration. The submission period for Issue #24 is January 1-March 1, 2020.
Widener University, home of The Blue Route, is hosting this year’s Forum for Undergraduate Student Editors Conference (FUSE), which will be held November 7th-9th, 2019. If you work on a campus publication, you should take a look at the call for proposals (which is in the link below). All kinds of great things are planned–a story slam keynote presentation and workshop, student and faculty panel presentations and discussions, a journal showcase, an open mic, and even a few “unconference” sessions that will give attendees a chance to set part of the agenda for the conference when they arrive. Hope to see you this fall!
The Blue Route is open again for submissions. The deadline for Issue #23 is October 1, 2019. Please see the submission guidelines for details.
The Blue Route will be accepting submissions for Issue #15 from August 1-October 1. Undergraduates, please send us your best fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry during that window. For more information, see our submission guidelines.
