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. From June 1 to November 1 each year, we invite submissions of poetry, fiction, dramatic writing, and nonfiction of a general literary interest, as well as visual art.

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, a non-native English speaker, a female, a member of the LGBTQIAPK+ community, a differently abled person, a trauma survivor, or anyone else frequently silenced or ignored by the modern media, please submit. SFLR cares about sharing your voice with the world.

Our 2020 theme is “Tapestry: Diversity, Culture, and Common Ground.” Our submissions period opens June 1, 2020, and closes November 1, 2020. We accept mailed submissions of poetry and prose, and electronic submissions of visual art.

Complimentary copies of the Santa Fe Literary Review (2020 issue) are available for safe curbside pickup at the Santa Fe Public Library Branches and at the SFCC Library.

For your copy, visit any of the three public library branches – Main Library, LaFarge, or South Side – on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Saturday between 12:30 – 5 PM. Then, follow the instructions on the signage provided to safely obtain your copy.

Or, visit the SFCC Library on Tuesday or Thursday between 11:00 AM – 1:30 PM, and on Wednesday, between 3 – 5 PM. Then, follow the instructions on the signage provided, and a staff member will bring a bagged copy straight to your vehicle.
