Blue Lyra Review aims to bring together the voices of writers and artists from a diverse array of backgrounds, paying special homage to Jewish writers and other communities that are historically underrepresented in literary magazines.
We accept poems, artistic images, nonfiction, translations or fiction, which you can submit through Submittable (formerly Sub Mishmash).
Take a look at our latest release: Issue 2.1.
Currently, we are open for submissions for Issue 2.2 (June 30th release). Check back for more information or sign up for our newsletter.
We are also putting together our first theme issue for 2.3 (October 30th): STORIES WE’D RATHER NOT TELL. We are looking for essays, stories, poems, translations, and art that fit into this theme.
There are 3 issues per year (February 28th, June 30th, and October 30th) followed by a print anthology by the year’s end beginning December 2013.
But there is more: we are releasing three special genre-only issues: August 2013 is poetry only, December 2013 is nonfiction only, and April 2014 is fiction only.
You can find more information about submitting on our Submissions page.
There is no contest at this time but stay tuned for more information!
