Writer’s Guidelines

The Blue Review publishes scholarly articles on a broad range of public affairs topics including politics, cities, the environment, the media, education and nonfiction reviews. We strive for lively writing that is informed, confident and speaks to the general public. Hence, no footnotes, minimal jargon and fewer words like “hence.”

Our feature stories are edited, fact-checked, and peer-reviewed. We publish weekly feature articles online, along with occasional multi-author forums on timely topics. To have your work considered for publication in The Blue Review we recommend you read several articles on our site to develop an understanding of the kind of work we publish, and then, send us a short email with the following information:

  • your idea in a few sentences;
  • why you are the right person to write it;
  • how it fits our mission.
