Sharpen your pencils and open your hearts. Our next BLUE HERON REVIEW call for submissions (for the SUMMER/2018 issue) is March 15th through April 5th, 2018. This will be a themed issue—ASPECTS OF LOVE. I am sharing these dates, in advance, to give writers a chance to create new work for this issue. Our submission period is short now (only 3 weeks), due to the very high volume of submissions we receive, so take this next month to write some truly meaningful poems to send us. Can’t wait to read all of your musings on the power of love—in all of its various forms!
THEMED ISSUE: “ASPECTS OF LOVE”
• The unifying power of love
• Love is love … honoring all love
• Romantic love
• The love of friendship
• Love for family
• Love for one’s calling or vocation in life
• The healing power of love
*Please visit our Submission Guidelines page for a full list of instructions, and read them carefully. We highly recommend that writers read sample issues first, to get a feel for the kind of poetry we publish.
With kind thoughts,
