Mission Statement


Lyre for Hire (Montreal) by Jazzla


Blue Lyra Review aims to unite writers and artists from a diverse array of backgrounds, paying special homage to the voices of Jewish writers and those from other underrepresented communities. Overall, we look for quality and do not exclude looking at work from any writer.

We accept poetry, nonfiction, translations book reviews and artistic images from Jan. 01 through September 29. Fiction is by invitation only; however, we have open reading periods for flash fiction during the months of March & October. Please submit your work through Submittable. 

There are 3 issues per year (Spring, Summer, Winter). You can find more information about submitting on our Submissions page. 

For more information, sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates.
