Welcome to Bluebird Review

Dear Readers and Poets,

Welcome to the second inaugural issue of Bluebird Review! We got kind of a rocky start in 2022, but we’re back and better than ever. We are thrilled to present this literary platform that celebrates the power of poetry and aims to give voice to the diverse array of talented poets from around the world. Poetry has an incredible ability to transcend barriers and connect us on a profound level. In an increasingly fast-paced and chaotic world, it serves as an oasis of reflection, introspection, and empathy.

Poetry has always been a vital part of human expression, offering a unique lens through which to explore the human condition. It distills complex emotions, experiences, and ideas into concise and evocative language, inviting us to pause, ponder, and perceive the world in new ways. Through verse, poets capture the essence of our shared humanity, rendering the invisible visible and allowing us to connect with one another across time and space.

However, the voices of poets often go unheard or unnoticed amidst the clamor of our daily lives. We believe that every poet deserves a platform to showcase their work and be heard. Bluebird Review is committed to providing a space where poets can express their innermost thoughts, feelings, and observations without restraint. We invite established and emerging poets alike to submit their work, embracing a diverse range of styles, themes, and perspectives.

At Bluebird Review, we believe that poetry is a catalyst for change. It has the power to challenge conventions, question societal norms, and inspire action. It can provoke us to examine our own lives, beliefs, and values, fostering personal growth and collective transformation. Through the pages of our journal, we aspire to amplify the voices of poets who are unafraid to tackle the pressing issues of our time, from social justice and environmental concerns to love, loss, and the complexities of the human experience.

Our editorial team consists of passionate poetry enthusiasts who are dedicated to curating a collection that resonates deeply with our readers. We will seek out the most compelling and thought-provoking poems, with a keen eye for craftsmanship and authenticity. Our goal is to create a publication that not only entertains and enlightens but also challenges, comforts, and inspires our readership.

We are excited to embark on this poetic journey with you, our cherished readers. Together, let us celebrate the beauty and power of poetry and the transformative potential it holds. Whether you are an avid poetry lover or new to the world of verse, we invite you to join us as we explore the vast landscapes of the human imagination.

Submissions are now open, and we eagerly anticipate discovering the hidden gems that lie within the hearts and minds of poets around the globe. We encourage you to share your unique perspectives, stories, and visions with us. Let your voice soar and be heard.

Thank you for embarking on this poetic adventure with us. We look forward to reading and sharing the extraordinary work that lies ahead.

Warmest regards,

Kristen Simental
