"BluePrintReview is an online journal constructed to ease the complex and beautiful convergence of language and art and all the possibilities this entails." - NewPages.com

The first issue of BluePrintReview went live in May 2005. Since the beginning, BluePrintReview explores unexpected connections between texts and images from unrelated places. The first issues mainly feature poetry, flash fiction, and photography.

With a growing number issues, BluePrintReview developed a broader spectrum of formats that includes non-fiction, art, short stories, and formats that don't fit precise categories. Edited by German author, traveller and web freelancer Dorothee Lang, BluePrintReview published 29 issues so far, with #30 now in process.

BluePrintReview highlights and special issues:

- issue 27: "synergetic transformation": issue of collaborations

- issue 24: "micro cosmos": flash fiction issue

- issue 22: "re /visit /cycle /turn": the issue of republished content

- issue 10: "time pause change": first theme issue

Stories first published in BluePrintReview have been included in the "best of the net online" anthology by Sundress Publications, in the Dzanc Books "Best of the Web" anthology, and in the storySouth Million Writers Top10 list.

BluePrintReview concept

the 4 concepts of this e-zine
1) texts and images are from unrelated places
2) themes for future issues develop through the work on the current issue.
3) there is no deadline or timetable - an issue goes online when it feels complete
4) all rules can be broken



(don't ask. this is to satisfy some german web laws)
