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. In recent issues, we’ve proudly featured the work of such writers as Tommy Orange, Layli Long Soldier, and Kirstin Valdez Quade.

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 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 submissions period opens June 1, 2022, and closes November 1, 2022. This year’s suggested SFLR theme is “Myth: Invention, Legend, and Lore.” SFLR accept submissions of poetry, dramatic writing, fiction, creative nonfiction, and visual art. SFLR responds to all submitters by December 15. If you haven’t heard word by then, feel free to email sflr(at)

Submit your work 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 – 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.
