Please read and follow our guidelines.

We welcome submissions of poetry, essay, short story, photography or photos of other visual artworks. Do not include more than 3 pieces per submission, or in the case of a short story 1 piece per submission. Please use the link to send your submission, after you create and account you can send your work as an attachment.

You may submit once a month. We want to offer a diverse selection of writers and artists on the site and this is more difficult if we receive a large number of submissions from one writer/artist.

We discourage simultaneous submissions, or work that has been published elsewhere, but please let us know if this is the case. We do make some exceptions.

We encourage all artists to include a bio for us to include but it is not mandatory.

All artists retain sole copyright of their work. By submitting you are allowing The Blue Hour to publish it on this site.  We are also glad to link to personal blogs or stores where your work is being sold or featured.

You must be over 18 to submit.

At this time we cannot offer any form of payment for publications.

Submissions should be sent to

The editors read submissions voluntarily as time permits. We will try our best to respond within four months but, in some cases, this period may be longer. If you have not received a response from us within 120 days, we will be happy to receive e-mail inquiries and will do our best to respond

Poet myself and from time to time post mine on my blog page here..Not sure yet if I’m ready to post mine else where yet though. In the meantime I’ll pop in often to check ya’ll out. Stay UPlifted & blessed🙂

  7. Hi; I’m having trouble creating a user account for submission; I don’t receive notification to my e-mail account when you say you have sent one; further, when retrying, you informed me that I am already registered, I tried to register a new password but the contact e-mail from you failed again; would you look into this but ‘un-approve’ this comment (it was the only way I could make contact

  9. I truly love your blog.. Very nice colors & theme.
    Did you build this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my very own site and would love to learn where you got this from or just what the theme is called.
