Red Rock Review

Red Rock Review is a biannual print publication that features poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction by emerging and established writers. Founded in 1996, Red Rock Review is housed and supported by The College of Southern Nevada. Publication of Red Rock Review is made possible by the School of Arts and Letters, the arts organizations of Nevada, and generosity of the community members of Las Vegas. 

Our submission periods for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry run from August 1st to November 30th and Jan 15th to April 30th. In the event that we reach our Submittable cap for the month, submissions may close early. Please check back with us once the month resets!
