Welcome to Blue Sage Magazine, an online youth literary magazine dedicated to elevating the voices of young writers and artists! We publish work from students in grades 3-6.

We are currently CLOSED for submissions. We will likely open for Issue 6 submissions in late May, so please check back then!


At Blue Sage Magazine, we firmly believe in the power of promoting diversity, unique perspectives, and self-expression through the mediums of art and writing. To do so, we guide kids toward developing and sharing their voices through art and writing. From our experience, kids in grades 3-6 are often overlooked, and they face a lack of accessible opportunities to share their voices with a broader audience. We hope to fill this gap! We are committed to providing a warm, welcoming, and safe platform through which kids can express themselves freely, gain confidence in their abilities, and improve their craft. To further this purpose, each writing submission will receive detailed personal feedback to guide the author toward sharpening their skills and amplifying their voice.

What our Writers & Artists Say About Us

"What I enjoyed about the feedback that they gave me was that it was, one, not only helpful, but it was good and every piece of feedback they gave I agreed with and made sure to add to my piece. They were so encouraging and thoughtful and added a good mix of feedback and parts of the story that they liked. I really enjoyed reading what a second person had to say about my piece."

- Anonymous, Grade 6

"I liked how they specifically told me what parts to add more details to and why. Now I have become better descriptive writer. Thank you!"

- Julia D., Grade 5

"I liked how encouraging the feedback was and how kind it was and it made me think of my poems. Thank you!"

- Janie Snyder, Grade 6

"I liked the feedback because it was very detailed and it gave specific things to work on. Also, it was encouraging and made me see my writing from a different point of view."

- Mila E., Grade 5
