Blood Orange Review publishes emerging and established writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Our editors look for compelling voices and work that demonstrates attention to craft. We want writing that changes us and challenges us to redefine our sense of perspective. We thrill when we publish someone for the first time, and though our journal is modestly sized and our selection is competitive, we encourage writers to submit.
We also community with organizations that seek to publish and support writers of all genders, identities, races, orientations, and ethnicities.
