This form is for all poetry submitted within the month of September that does not fit within a specific category so is submitted within more "general" form. As such, the submission date is the last day of October.
At Blue, we want the electric, the bold, and every single risk taker.
Submissions should include 2-10 poems in a single document. Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but please withdraw your work if it is accepted elsewhere.
The good: confessional poetry, LGBTQ+ narrative, unflinching emotional honesty, free verse and experimental, open vulnerability, what you would say if there were no consequences
The bad: traditional form, rhyme schemes, cliches, generalities, and playing it safe
The ugly: homophobia, racism, sexism, ableism, xenophobia, slut shaming, fat shaming, romanticism of mental illness, etc. is NEVER tolerated and will automatically earn you an indefinite block via Blue. This includes anything posted on your social media accounts or shown in other aspects of your life, because Blue does not believe in the separation of art and its creators.
