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



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
