Blood Orange Review has a thoughtful and inquisitive bent, as well as a humorous one. We are not afraid of the erudite or environmental; however, if we bristle or stop having fun, we figure there is a good chance our readers will too. In a word, write deftly. Leave us desiring more. As an on-line journal, we are looking for intense, waste-free language.
