Check out the latest issue of Blue Mesa Review at This is our second issue honoring the work of BMR Founder Rudolfo Anaya and includes an interview with Maria Teresa Marquez about Anaya, and other tributes to him, as well as selections in poetry, nonfiction and fiction chosen by our genre editors Rhea Ramakrishnan, Mikaela Osler and Jennifer Tubbs.

Thank you to Mario Montoya, our outgoing Editor-in-Chief, who made these issues possible.  Another huge thank you goes out Dr. Melina Vizcaino-Aleman, who liaisoned with the BMR staff to create our issues honoring BMR founder Rudolfo Anaya.  And thank you to Albuquerque artist Albert Rosales, whose painting is on our cover.

Welcome to our incoming BMR crew for next year: Rhea Ramakrishnan will be our new EIC, with genre editors Cyrus Stuvland (creative nonfiction), Ruben Miranda-Juarez (fiction) Evelyn Olmos (poetry), and Tyler Mortensen-Hayes (associate editor).
