This month’s lit mag highlight is a Minnesota journal run by students of the University of Minnesota Mankato’s Creative Writing Program. I had the great opportunity once at Hamline to listen to one of the student editors talk about their work. Like all lit mags, they put an incredible amount of time into deciding what pieces to take, but I find it notable that Blue Earth Review is so thoroughly run by students (Hamline had professors as chief editors for each genre, with students as their board). They have an interesting selection to read on their website as well. I particularly enjoyed “A Meditation at Opae’ula” by Derek Otsuji from Issue 27, but there are plenty of other things from fiction to art. The link for their site is on the right of this (and any) post. If you have time, take a peak!
