About

301 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

The Coachella Review [is] a literary arts journal nestled in the Coachella valley, but with an eye towards writers and readers around the globe. As a vibrant online multimedia magazine, TCR is free to all and aims to showcase the best of what is possible on the web, where visual and auditory arts can coexist with poetry and prose in lively ways that enrich the reader’s interaction with a magazine. Located close to Los Angeles, we also have a keen interest in screenplays and one-act plays, and a relationship with the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Basically, if you can imagine it and make it, we are probably interested in checking it out! Our only criteria is quality. Knock us over, because that’s why we’re here.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
