When you add your story to the Archives, you will have the option of sharing it for publication in the Blue Review. You can use your name or remain anonymous. It just takes a few minutes.

Share whatever you like: Journals, photographs, social media, artwork, videos, poetry, emails, personal reflections, blog posts, or anything that represents your thoughts, feelings, observations, and experiences about this historic time.
