From the editors:
Blue River is a non-profit literary journal produced by Creighton University’s MFA program. We seek to build a new tradition: to foster and celebrate contemporary graduate-level creative writers by publishing their fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. In that spirit, we provide our own MFA students with experience in literary editing and production as a preparation for work in the publishing industry.
