An introduction to Blue Vortext Publishers:

At the center is the light, the essence of energy, the idea exalted, the gem—a perfect yoke of meaning. The continually swirling vortex  comes to a central calm of intimate fruition, as does the smallest insect touching a pond, causing a ripple millions of times larger than itself, like the Zen of a butterfly when the flutter of its wings in one part of the world may eventually cause a hurricane in another. The whole is greater than the sum of all parts in this multi-layered world of creative expression.

Blue Vortext Publishers

Welcome to Blue VorTEXT, a place to rest and become energized by the arts: literary, visual, lyrical, musical, whimsical and more.

Blue VorTEXT is an on-line journal founded in 2013 and the parent company Blue Vortex Publishers, founded in 2002. It is a San Diego, California based business. Until 2013 it focused on the publishing of limited edition books and worked with other publishers to provide author escorts to television, radio and other media events, food-styling for television food-network authors and other unique author-related activities. With the launching of this Blue VorTEXT on-line journal, we throw an even wider net. Archives of the journal will eventually culminate into a printed anthology. There is no submission process at this time but eventually we plan to have submission calls several times a year. Writers and artists are featured by invitation.

Our Mission:

Each issue may find the following:

  • A feature writer or artist
  • An interview with the writer or artist
  • A showcase of art or photograph
  • Book Reviews
  • Poetry
  • A preview of the next issue

  4. The idea for this site is grand. Your presentation is both inspiring and beautiful. I was introduced to your site by my long time friend and former collaborator Diane Gage through you fantastic special issue devoted to her. I hope your vision will take wing to inspire the arts not only in San Diego but around the world, especially focusing on the many fine writers and artists who create at the margins here in San Diego. Please put me on your list for all future issues.
