The Alcalá Review was originally founded in 2015 as an online publication created to publish the winners of the Cropper Creative Writing Contest. Since then, it has expanded into a full-size print journal that aims to showcase the very best of national undergraduate talent. From fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, to visual art and photography, we welcome the submissions of writers and artists both experienced and emerging.

Based out of the University of San Diego in Southern California, The Alcalá Review is an entirely student-run organization. If you have any questions, or are a current USD student interested in joining, please contact us at alcalareview@gmail.com.
