Student-Run. Since 1950.
The University of Nevada, Reno's Oldest Literature and Arts Publication
Brushfire Submit Link

The Brushfire journal exists because of our contributors. Without submissions from creative students and artists everywhere, there would be no content, no fuel to set each new Brushfire into print. Share your work with us today!

Artist Spotlight

Get to know our published artists! Brushfire’s Artist Spotlights feature some of our favorite UNRists and local contributors. Learn about their work, their studies, and so much more

Monthly Poetry Nights

Join us every first Tuesday at Laughing Planet from 7pm-9pm for a night of poetry. Our open-mics do not require pre-registration! Come share your poetry or simply  support your fellow artists as an audience member!


Throughout its seventy-three years in print, Brushfire’s priority has been to connect various student and local Reno art communities with eager readers and viewers. The publication strives to be a creative outlet for the student body at UNR and make art accessible for everyone.
