Publisher's description: The Blue Mountain Review launched from Athens, Georgia in 2015 with the mantra, “We’re all south of somewhere.” As a journal of culture, the BMR strives to represent life through its stories. Stories are vital to our survival. Songs save the soul. Our goal is to preserve and promote lives told well through prose, poetry, music, and the visual arts.
The Blue Mountain Review works to bring you inspiration and practical advice. A quarterly publication, in every issue we include interviews with luminaries from the art community. We sit down with authors, poets, painters, economists, musicians, publishers, activists, spiritual leaders, landscapers, and engineers to find out how they make creativity a livelihood. “Art is anything done well,” is the philosophy we live by.
Our editors read year-round with an eye out for work with homespun and international appeal. We want original poetry, short stories, cross-genre, and visual art. We offer contests and in-depth critique options with one of our editors.
The Blue Mountain Review has published work by and/or interviews with Jericho Brown, Kelli Russell Agodon, Robert Pinsky, Rising Appalachia, Nahko, Michel Stone, The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, Leon Stokesbury, Christopher Swann, Abyss Graham, Genesis Greykid, Cassandra King, Todd Boss, Melissa Studdard, A.E. Stallings, and Christopher Dickey.
