Based out of the University of San Diego, The Alcalá Review was founded in 2015 as an online journal to publish winners of the Cropper Creative Writing Contest. Since then, we have expanded into an annual, full-print issue. Conceived as equal parts platform and workshop, The Alcalá Review is staffed entirely by students. While the artistic vision of each editorial board may differ, we are always committed to the personal growth of our readers and contributors, as well as to the publication of original perspectives from a diversity of voices.
