Blue Mesa Review


From the Editor

Blue Mesa Review is a literary magazine published online bi-annually. It is associated with the University of New Mexico. We have a rotating editorial board, so each year our issues are fresh and unique. Blue Mesa Review is currently celebrating it’s 25th anniversary. BMR was founded by Rudolfo A. Anaya.


Blue Mesa Review accepts previously unpublished work in Fiction (up to 6,000 words), Nonfiction (up to 6,000 words), Poetry (3-5 poems) as well as Visual Art. In general, we are seeking strong voices and lively, compelling narrative with a fine eye for craft. We look forward to reading your best work!


Each year Blue Mesa Review holds a writing contest in Fiction and Poetry during the summer. The 2014 judges are Roxane Gay for Fiction and Carmen Giménez Smith for Poetry. Submit your very best work online through our submissions manager. First place winners receive $500 and publication in Blue Mesa Review and second place will also receive publication. We look forward to reading your work!
