Orison Books Anthology Nominations from Blue Heron Review for 2015 Announced!

Blue Heron Review is pleased to announce our nominations for The Orison Anthology, due out summer/2016. Orison Books supports the philosophy that, “… spiritual writing has little to do with subject matter. Such work is not merely about spiritual contemplation, but itself leads the reader into profound contemplation. It is not merely about the sublime, but itself has a sublime effect on the reader.” Congratulations to all of our poets nominated to be included in this special anthology! If any of our contributors are chosen, we will make a special announcement on this page.
