Puerto del Sol, now in its 53rd year of publication, is published by MFA candidates at New Mexico State University.

For half a century, Puerto del Sol has been dedicated to providing a forum for inventive and fresh fiction, poetry, reviews, criticism, and artwork from emerging and established writers and artists.

We recommend purchasing our current issue or exploring our online content to get a better idea of the kinds of work we publish.

Ends on October 15, 2017
This themed issue invites interdisciplinary cross-pollination from the sciences, soft and hard. We are looking for works that celebrate and interrogate science, that occupy and define the space between scientific method and artistic production, that navigate the morass between factual environment and the literary interior. We want thought experiments and experimental form. We want tree rings and neutrinos, algorithms and fractals. We want to understand how much we don’t understand (and we don’t mind if you don’t put that in layman’s terms). Most of all, we want to publish innovative work across every literary kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species.

Fiction submissions are limited to one self-contained work (no excerpts please) and should be of under 10,000 words.

The Black Voices Series believes that to fight cultural silencing and erasure there needs to be more spaces that provide visibility for black-authored work. We want your poems, your essays, your fiction, and your multi-modal work. We thank you for trusting us with your voices. #blackvoicesmatter #blacklivesmatter #wearevisible
