The Coachella Review is the literary arts journal of the University of California Riverside–Palm Desert Graduate Center and the MFA program in Creative Writing and Writing for the Performing Arts. 

We accept original work that is vibrant, thoughtful, and precise. Whether your work is innovative or traditional, we strive to celebrate writing that holds readers in awe. 

We publish two issues a year, in June and December, and curate an ecclectic blog. We welcome submissions during our open call periods for the issue and year-round for the blog. Our response time is generally three to six months; simultaneous submissions are welcome.

We accept many types of content for TCR Daily including reviews, essays, short fiction, photo essays, and interviews. 

Please query the Multimedia editor first for reviews and interviews via email:
