A Colorado Literary Journal

Welcome to The Almagre Review/La Revista Almagre, a literary journal founded in Colorado. We publish two themed issues a year, with special stand-alone projects on the side. Our primary goal is to promote writers and illustrators from the mountains and the prairies. If you fall outside those boundaries, don’t worry, we’d still love to read your work.

submit-buttonOur interests are broad, from fiction, to poems, memoirs, essays, and interviews. We also feature illustrations that enhance contributor material. So… what sets us apart? Well, we enjoy well-written novel excerpts as much as the finely tuned short story. The Almagre Review is also a friendly home for veterans. We love the opportunity to share words penned by those who have served.


We do not charge for submissions, but in the spirit of artistic solidarity, please consider purchasing a copy of our journal, (where one will find contributors such as; Julie Shavin, Clay Jenkinson, Mike Callicrate, Janice Gould, Jim Ciletti, Jeb Rosebrook, and many more). The Almagre just closed shop for Issue 3 submissions, but we’re taking work for Issue 4, Language & Music. Send us fiction, memoirs, essays, and poems that enlarge this narrative.

John Nichols, author of The New Mexico Trilogy, (The Milagro Beanfield War, The Magic Journey, The Nirvana Blues), joins Joe Barrera, Publisher of The Almagre Review, to discuss his life, his works, and guiding philosophies; portions of which will appear in Issue 3, ENVIRONMENT.

One thought on “A Colorado Literary Journal

  1. Dear Friends,
    Once again, we share with you news from The Almagre Review. We interviewed famed Taos writer John T. Nichols, the author of the Milagro Beanfield War trilogy, in January, 2017. The Almagre Review will soon publish our Environmental Issue, with the John Nichols interview and the environmental philosophy for which he is famous prominently featured.
    We plan on a Symposium on Sustainability and the New Agriculture sometime soon. We anticipate that Colorado businessman and organic rancher Mike Callicrate will participate.
    We are also scheduling The Almagre Review Literary Salons. Our first Salon will be with Janice Gould, former Poet Laureate of Colorado, who will lead a reading and discussion of Kate Chopin’s
    Story of an Hour. This is a very short story (about 2 pages) which we will read on April 6 at the
    Salon (location and time TBA).
    In May, I will lead a reading and discussion of Ernest Hemingway’s Soldier’s Home, another very short story.
    Joe Barrera, publisher
