Palest Blue is a youth-led literary magazine dedicated to the idea that publishing should serve authors, not publishers. In too many literary magazines today, hyperscrutinization causes beautiful pieces to be reduced to a grammatical flaw or structural error. Palest Blue, however, accepts almost all pieces submitted -- and when we reject pieces, we follow up with an explanation and suggestions for improvement. We are always more than happy to publish the piece once those flaws are patched.
