Editorial Focus

We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, literary criticism, and book reviews. Generally speaking, we want material covering the Greater Southwest or material written by Southwestern writers. Est. 1971. We look for crisp language, an interesting approach to material; a regional approach is desired but not required. We seek creative works that move beyond stereotype and approach the larger defining elements that, as William Faulkner noted, treat subjects central to good literature—the old verities of the human heart.

Tips From the Editor

Ethnic/multicultural, literary, mainstream, regional—no science fiction or romance. Send complete manuscript and cover letter, including a two- to five-line bio and list of publications.
