Bluefire Blog now accepting submissions!
The Bluefire Blog is now open and accepting submissions from current students in grades 5-12. We are accepting creative fiction, creative non-fiction (e.g., personal reflections, nature writing, memoirs), and poetry of up to 2500 words. The content can be on any topic so long as it is the original work of the author not previously published. If you are accepted to the blog, your work will remain on the site for at least two weeks, and you will be eligible to appear in our journal, Bluefire, in the Best of Bluefire Blog chapter. Please read the Submission Guidelines and go to the Submission Form to enter your work.
Visit us here often to learn about special challenges and prompts, or follow us on Twitter (@Blue4Beban) or Tumblr. You can also submit a Contact Us form and select to opt in to our email newsletter.
We look forward to seeing your work, and good luck!
