WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

Suesblues is an independent platform looking to give writers and journalists a voice and a means to contribute original content that provokes thought and encourages open mindedness and discussion.

We are interested in exceptional writing, creative essays and short stories of both fiction and non-fiction. We also welcome your poetry. We seek out writers who are honest, raw and open to the possibility of expanding awareness and teaching through their work.

We are seeking integral contributions from local independent journalists and writers who are focused on exceptional craftsmanship and avid detail to the content they create.

We want to make a difference by sharing stories that don’t get the voice or platforms they deserve by exceptional journalists who are wanting to make an impact at large.

Our focus is Inspiration, Wellness, Arts and Culture. We also cover spirituality and consciousness extensively.
