Bluefield, VA.-The Bluestone Review is now accepting submissions for its 26th edition until Friday, March 1, 2019. The Bluestone Review is distributed by Bluefield University annually. The publication accepts submissions from members of the Bluefield University family and community members from surrounding areas.

“Since 1992, The Bluestone Review has served as the only place in the region where the creative voices of local artists and writers of all ages can come together and be heard,” said faculty adviser Dr. Rob Merritt. “Every year we discover new talent. We are excited to see who will appear this year.”

Accepted submission formats include poetry, fiction, nonfiction, song lyrics, art, and photography. Works of prose should be under 750 words, and each contributor is asked to submit 5 pieces total, not per category.
