Welcome to BER
Blue Earth Review is the literary magazine of Minnesota State University, Mankato. Before being wholly revamped and renamed in 2003, BER was published under such titles as Medicine Jug, The Muse, and Minnesota River Review.
Since 2008, Blue Earth Review has been funded by the MSU Bookstore as well as donations. Both sources help to cover printing, mailing, advertising, and other costs of running a magazine.
