Blue Island Review seeks submissions for our second anthology. We are looking for poetry from anyone living in Northeast Kansas or anyone with a connection to the greater Kansas City area. We are accepting submissions online starting now until July 15th. Please submit no more than 3 poems, your best work. We respond in 90 days….THE BLUE ISLAND REVIEW is a journal produced by writers living in Lawrence, Kansas.The members of the Blue Island Poetry Group hold these tenets: that poetry is the art of making all suffer; that hypergraphia is a disorder that should be incubated; that the experience of poetry is to induce emotion through image, sound, and association; that narrative is prose, and should remain such in its multiple nefarious forms; that economy of words is most powerful; that love as it is known is a most brutal form of chemical warfare, and that to inflict poetry on the unsuspecting, both in print and in voice, is the highest calling of very sexy people.
To that end, we solicit contributions from writers living in (or connected to) northeast Kansas in the hopes that their work reaches more lovers of poetry than it otherwise might.See More
