Based out of the University of San Diego in Southern California, The Alcalá Review was founded in 2015 as an online journal to publish winners of the annual Cropper Creative Writing Contest. Since then, we have expanded into a semi-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, contributors, and, of course, to the publication of exemplary new work.

If you have any questions, or are a current USD student interested in joining, please contact us at alcalareview@gmail.com.
