Joshua Wait created Blue Rivers in the Spring of 2003 to provide a platform for sharing original content. In the early days of Blue Rivers, much of the content was created by a number of guests. Currently, nearly all of the artwork, poetry, and essays on this website were created by Joshua Wait.
The name Blue Rivers comes from Josh’s love for the rivers of California, in particular, the Toulumne River where he spent his childhood summers and the creek that ran through the property of his parent’s home. He fondly remembers catching minnows, crayfish, and frogs in that creek as a child.
