This is a fabulous site. I love how it is organized and how it looks. It is obvious that you care about your writers and your readers. I’m especially fond of the quality of the writing. Bravo.
-Thanks Joy! I loved reading Like Vapor !
Are you a paying market? You need to make it more clear in your guidelines!
-I think any market that pays is perfectly willing to make it clear and if it doesn’t say then assume it does not pay. That seems standard to me. However, to make sure it is clear: we do not pay except in contributor copies when we run our annual print edition.
I agree with Joy (above). Your website is easy to navigate and the pages are attractive, clean, and easy to read.
Just curious, does Blue Lyra have a geographical home? The masthead seems to indicate editors live in far-flung places.
From the Managing Editor:
Thanks for noticing and yes, our editors are different locations – this is the beauty of the Internet! 🙂
Do you take prose poems?
I realize this could be a gray area between fiction and poetry, or non-fiction as the case may be.
May you have a blessed 2016
Yes, we love prose poems and we tried to have a prose poetry chapbook in each of the upcoming Blue Lyra Press chapbook series available at bluelyrapress.org. We are open to all forms of poetry but we particularly love strong imagery and a strong voice, prose poems, long poems, short poems, poems about nature, persona poems, science related, and narrative.
how can I publish my poem in your site
Thank you for reaching out to us but we are publishing our last issue in June 2017. However, the press will continue to publish wonderful chapbooks and anthologies!
