Literary Spotlight: The Blue Mountain Review

‘We want to inspire those who carry the misconception that you can’t make a living through art,’ says the founder of this six-year-old journal.


An essay titled “Growing Pains of an Adolescent America.” The winners of the “Women in Resilience” poetry contest. An interview with magician Eric Henning, who’s performed at three presidential inaugurations. Short fiction titled “Neighborhood Zombies.” These are just a few of the pieces you’ll find in the November 2020 issue of The Blue Mountain Review.

The six-year-old cultural journal is part of The Southern Collective Experience, which brings together visual artists, musicians, poets, and writers to support one another and their creative work. Poet Clifford Brooks founded the organization in 2010 and serves as poetry editor of the Review.
