Its pages help define this region in literary and artistic terms, and represent a collection of work that charts the changes of a distinctive, unique region. High Desert Journal is one of the first publications to give readers another way to understand and think about the high desert: through the stories and images that spring from the memories and imaginations of writers and artists.

We accept poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, memoirs, books reviews, essays, interviews and visual arts.
