Journal The Blue Hour

The blue hour is the period of twilight each morning and evening where we move from day to night. There is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. This time is considered special because of its unique quality of light.The purpose of this magazine is to provide a place where artists and writers can gather, read and see each other’s work and allow their work to be found by others. It is also a place where we can publish valuable art and put it out into the world. There are very few things greater than finding new talent.
