Diverging Paths -- Nate Infante

Blueline seeks poems, stories and essays about the Adirondacks and regions similar in geography and spirit, focusing on nature's shaping influence. We also welcome creative nonfiction that interprets the literature or culture of the region, including northern New York, New England and Eastern Canada.

Blueline always publishes both new and established writers. You'll catch our attention if your writing is vigorous, interesting and polished. We're not interested in effusive descriptions of scenery. We are looking for realistic approaches to the environment: the literature we publish expresses imagination, reflection, and insight about the natural world.

The submission period is July through November. Decision are made mid-February. Payment is made in copies. Simultaneous submissions accepted if identified as such: notify the editors immediately if a simultaneous submission is placed elsewhere. No previously published works. Send manuscripts to:

120 Morey Hall, SUNY Potsdam
Potsdam, NY 13676

Electronic submissions are encouraged as Word *.docx attachments sent via email. When emailing attachments, please identify the genre of the work in the subject line. Send them and any questions to blueline@potsdam.edu.

Arts Submissions

Open to all artists. Editors are interested in art in all media suitable for 2D color or black and white reproductions that address in some way the concerns and experiences of the Adirondacks and/or regions similar in spirit or geography.

In recent issues we've featured a variety of forms of painting and photography from local experts and newer artists as well. If you're unsure about what we are looking for, please email us, purchase a back copy or explore this website. Please submit 2D images as jpegs at 300 pxl or higher. Anything less than 300 pxl will not reproduce well. Send images and any questions to blueline@potsdam.edu.
