Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The New Mexico Review is an online literary journal that is proudly created and curated by graduate and undergraduate students from the New Mexico Highlands University English Department in Las Vegas, New Mexico. We are interested in voices—quiet or bold— that stay with us and in perspectives that reshape us, from both emerging and established writers. Founded by Spanish settlers in 1835, Las Vegas was once a stop on the Santa Fe Trail and boasts 900 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Railroad Avenue District that houses the historic La Castaneda Hotel, which hosted the first reunion of Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders after the Spanish-American War. When the railroad arrived on July 4, 1879, it brought Las Vegas an overnight boom, rivaling cities such as Denver and El Paso. Although Las Vegas has settled down since, its history of railroad boom, outlaw culture, and an Old West struggle for self-determination still echoes throughout the city—in its people, architecture, and culture.
