The Santa Fe Literary Review



The Santa Fe Literary Review (SFLR) is published annually by the Santa Fe Community College. An in-print literary journal, SFLR features work by local, national, and international writers and artists. We use Submittable, an online submissions platform, for all submissions. From July 15 to November 1 each year, we invite submissions of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and visual art. In recent issues, we’ve proudly featured the work of such writers as Tommy Orange, Layli Long Soldier, Kirstin Valdez Quade, and Darryl Lorenzo Wellington.

Our submissions period opens July 15, 2023, and closes November 1, 2023. Our suggested theme for our 2024 issue is “Lovely, Dark and Deep: Journeys Real and Imagined.” SFLR accept submissions of poetry, dramatic writing, fiction, creative nonfiction, and visual art. SFLR editors notify writers and artists of editorial decisions by December 25 each year. If you’ve submitted work and have not heard a reply by January 1, feel free to email us at to request an update. During our submissions period, we accept submissions for free through Submittable, but first, please review the SFLR guidelines for prose, poetry and visual art.

For your copy of the SFLR, visit any of the three public library branches during the months of August and September. You can also pick up a complimentary copy at the Santa Fe Community College Library or in the Office of Liberal Arts. Or, view all of our issues online

SFLR aims to promote a diverse range of writers and artists, and to present a wide variety of stories, styles, and cultural perspectives. We’re especially committed to promoting voices that aren’t always empowered in the publishing world, so if you’re a writer of color, an Indigenous person, a non-native English speaker, a female, a person with a disability, a member of the LGBTQIAPK+ community, a trauma survivor, or anyone else frequently silenced or ignored by the modern media, please submit.

If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please email SFLR at
