The Blue Tiger Review is a literary journal started by the University of Michigan-Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (JI), and we are seeking creative work for our first issue.

This is your chance to get your work read and considered by JI students and faculty, and if selected for publication, the editorial staff will work with you to develop your writing skills.

The Blue Tiger Review welcomes written and visual work from high school and university ESL students as well as veteran writers. We publish creative work from students on our website in the following genres:

-Fiction, less than 3,000 words

-Creative non-fiction, less than 3,000 words

-Poetry, three or fewer poems

-Flash fiction or non-fiction, less than 500 words

-Translations of poetry, fiction, or non-fiction

From more veteran international writers, we accept creative submissions of any kind. If accepted, we ask that experienced writers write a paragraph or two of advice for our students writers. In addition to creative work, we also accept any non-fiction on practical advice for studying or teaching creative writing.

In addition to written submissions, we also accept visual submissions that can come in the form of either art, photography, or digital composition.

Please submit all files with your genre in the subject line. Multiple genres of submission means multiple emails.

Please include your name, year in school, and first language in your email. If you are translating a work, make sure you either have the writer’s permission or the work is in the public domain.

There are no fees to submit your work, and we are not yet a paying market. Send us your best work, and we will do our best to read it soon.
